FILE -- In this April 19, 2011 file photo provided by the Italian Coastguard, a boat reportedly carrying 760 migrants arrives at the Lampedusa harbor, Italy. Italy is officially ending its Mare Nostrum rescue operations Friday Nov. 1 2014, and the EU's Frontex border control will begin its Tritone mission Saturday. Italy launched the Mare Nostrum operation last year after 366 would-be migrants drowned off Sicily. Ships and aircraft involved in the 9.5 million-euro ($11.9 million) per month mission patrolled close to the Libyan coast, rescuing over 100,000 people. Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said Italy will still honor its obligation to respond to ships in distress and that no lives will be sacrificed. (AP Photo/Italian Coastguard, h.o. FILE)
