Around 100 migrants are staying in tents at a camp set up with the help of the Italian Red Cross and local authorities near to Rome's Tiburtina station, as shown by footage shot on Sunday. The makeshift camp was opened on Saturday following France's decision to increase security at the Italian border. Paris' decision to increase border security, combined with the police evictions of around 500 migrants from at least two makeshift camps in the city, has resulted in many migrants opting to stay in Italy, temporarily halting their journeys that are typically northward towards countries like the UK or Sweden. Although Italian Red Cross Director Alessandro Radicchi is reported to have said that the camp is only a short-term solution, work started on Sunday to transform an old, disused hotel into more accommodation. It is hoped that the additional space will facilitate the housing of a further 200 migrants. Over 100,000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean and landed on European shores in 2015 alone, with southern Europe seeing the majority of arrivals. Italy is currently host to an estimated 54,000 new arrivals, a number rivalled only by the 48,000 migrants that have arrived in Greece this year.
