MILAN/VALLETTA (Reuters) - Italian Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli on Sunday called for sanctions against Malta, accusing it of not rescuing migrant boats in the Mediterranean and leaving the burden to Italy, in the latest row between the two countries over the issue.

Toninelli said on Twitter the European Union had to open "its ports to solidarity" and take in migrants rescued at sea.
