Revolts Raise Fear of Migration in Europe

Until a few weeks ago, the immigrant transfer center on this tiny Mediterranean island - a kind of Italian Ellis Island - was empty. An extensive European campaign against migration from Africa was considered so effective that the authorities basically shut it down.

The head of the United Nations refugee agency said on Thursday that it was proving a "logistical nightmare" to help tens of thousands of migrant workers fleeing Libya in a desperate crush on the Tunisian border.

The United Nations refugee agency says almost 100,000 people have fled Libya's fighting to neighboring Tunisia and Egypt in what it called a humanitarian emergency.
