Volcanic Island to appear in Mediterranean?

Italian scientists have detected an increase in seismic activity from Graham Island, a volcano situated between Italy and Tunisia, whose peak is just eight metres below the surface of the Mediterranean. This time, Italian divers have already placed a flag on it, claiming the territory for Italy in case it reappears.

The last time was in July 1831, when Graham Island, which rose up 63 metres above the seas and had a circumference of five kilometres, was claimed by Britain, Italy (which called it Ferdinandea), the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies (Sicily and Naples) and Spain. The British Navy occupied the island and placed the Union jack on it, which incurred the wrath of Ferdinand II of Bourbon, King of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. He ordered a mission to tear down the British flag and replace it with his own. However, before the two countries could start to fight over it, it disappeared again the following January. The first time it appeared was during the First Punic War (264 to 241 BC). Enzo Boschi, Director of the Italian Institute of Geophysics and Volcanic Studies, claimed in a conference in Sicily that seismic activity has increased and that there is a possibility that this “up and down” island may resurface. He stated that his team has detected slight tremors in the region.
