Italian authorities caught smugglers from Libya unloading 81 migrants off their small fishing boat in the Mediterranean onto an even smaller vessel near the coast of Italy.

"A surveillance plane belonging to the European Union’s border force, Frontex, captured footage of the smugglers at work, about 100 kilometres south of the island of Lampedusa," EuroNews reported.
Frontex alleges the fishing boat transferred 81 migrants to a smaller vessel, which then headed towards Italy.

The fishing vessel headed back towards Libya. An Italian patrol boat gave chase and intercepted the vessel north of the Libyan coast.
