The problem of illegal immigrants reaching Malta from Libya could be resolved come May 15 if a declaration made by Italian Home Affairs Minister Roberto Maroni comes to fruition.
Mr Maroni said leaving Libya would become extremely hard come May 15, when the agreement on joint patrols by Italian and Libyan personnel of the Libyan 2,000-kilometre coastline enters into force.

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — An international migration official says more than 200 people are believed dead as more bodies washed ashore in Libya after their overcrowded boat with illegal migrants capsized in stormy Mediterranean waters during it's attempt to reach Italian islands .
Laurence Hart, an official with the International Organization for Migration in Libya, says
authorities have stopped rescue efforts since chances of finding more survivors are slim.Hart says several more bodies washed ashore Tuesday night near the ancient port city of Sebrata, some 50 miles, or 80 kilometers, west of the capital, Tripoli.
The migrants were packed on a wooden fishing boat that capsized Friday off Libya. Only a few survivors were rescued, and 21 bodies were pulled from the sea.
