Carabinieri (Italian paramilitary police) officers and soldiers patrol as migrants sit on the ground in the island of Lampedusa, Italy, Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011. Migrants clashed with police and residents on the tiny Italian island of Lampedusa on Wednesday, prompting Italy to announce they all would be transferred and repatriated within 48 hours. Television footage showed riot police wielding clubs and beating the migrants as they jumped from a balcony near the island's commercial port. The clashes came a day after migrants set their overcrowded holding center on fire to protest Italy's policy of forced repatriations. (AP Photo/Alessandro Fucarini) less
