Random Pagan Verse:
Remember that the Art is the secret of the Gods and may only be used in earnest -- never for show, or pride, or personal glory. The Christians may taunt you saying, "You have no power: Perform some magic for us, and then we may believe." Do not listen to them, for the Art is
holy and is to be used only in need.

2 dead as 2,000 migrants rescued off Libya

Nearly 2,000 migrants and two corpses have been recovered from people smugglers? boats off Libya since Tuesday, Italy?s coast guard said Wednesday.
Further rescue operations were ongoing, a spokesman told AFP.
The figures represent a pick-up in the flow of migrants attempting to reach Italy via Libya, a route through which around 330,000 people have made it to Europe since the start of 2014.

Prior to the latest rescues, the UN refugee agency had reported 9,500 landing at Italian ports since the start of the year. This compares with more than 143,000 who have reached Greek islands by crossing the Aegean Sea since Jan. 1. With efforts underway to close the entry route through Greece, Italian authorities are wary of a surge in the number of migrants attempting to come through Libya.
