More than 900 people have arrived at the Italian port of Catania in Sicily after being rescued at sea by the Italian coastguard.

This comes amid a growing diplomatic row between Italy and France over the new Italian government’s refusal to allow a French rescue boat to dock.

France’s president has called that rejection cynical and irresponsible, and the Italian government has fired back.

Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull reports from Rome.
