LAMPEDUSA, ITALY - APRIL 2: Fire broke out in an abandoned camper used by some migrants as a shelter, sending up a cloud of black smoke on April 2, 2011 in Lampedusa, Italy. High winds blocked ferries from taking migrants away Saturday from Lampedusa, frustrating the migrants who have been protesting about a lack of food, water and shelter.??Thousands of people, many who left North Africa following recent unrest, are stranded on the Italian island of Lampedusa in appalling conditions. About 22,000 immigrants have arrived on the island since January, most of them from Tunisia. with many already having been moved to other parts of Italy.
