Italy: More than 900 rescued refugees arrive in Sicily

More than 900 people have arrived at the Italian port of Catania in Sicily after being rescued at sea by the Italian coastguard.

This comes amid a growing diplomatic row between Italy and France over the new Italian government's refusal to allow a French rescue boat to dock.

France's president has called that rejection cynical and irresponsible, and the Italian government has fired back.
