Malta's Navy stormed the boat with 108 pirates

In the port of La Valletta, a red cargo ship, accompanied with his most recent, apparently the moving journey of the already rich and dramatic escape Saga on the Central Mediterranean route, a new Chapter. The operator of the Elhiblu 1 is Turkish, the ship crosses but under the flag of Palau, a small island state in the Pacific.

On Wednesday, when it started to its destination port of Tripoli, the Libyan coast guard commissioned, 108 refugees to save that which was caught off the coast of North Africa in distress. Yourself you could not help, radioed the Libyans to be a fast boat just broken.

The Turkish Crew of the Ölfrachters took the migrants on Board and wanted to bring them to Tripoli, the coast guard had granted. The commander reported that the refugees had been very upset: not a price you would have wanted back, in the infamous Libyan detention centres. Six nautical miles off Tripoli registered by the radars, such as the Elhiblu took 1 changed course and course to the North. Some of the migrants are to overpowered the Crew and forced Europe to drive – Lampedusa, Italy's post the southernmost outer, or La Valletta.

"Italy you can forget"

Little Italy's Minister of the interior, Matteo Salvini had to know the history of the Elhiblu 1, he signed up with a direct connection to Facebook, as he does often in such cases. It was a "kidnapping" in progress, he said. And added with an ironic undertone: "poor Shipwrecked kidnap a ship, which rescued them, because they want to determine the route of your cruise yourself. I say to the pirates: Italy you can forget it." This is a crime, and criminals in the Italian waters were locked.

Soon it was clear that the ship had taken instead of the course in Malta. The Maltese government, the quarrels often with the populist Roman government responsibilities, it looked for once like Salvini. To the Navy, the command, the Elhiblu1 to intercept thirty nautical miles in front of La Valletta. The newspaper "Times of Malta" writes, the Marines have stormed the ship and in the port. Five passengers were taken away in handcuffs, probably the ringleader. Under the 108Migranten, the ship left, were 19 women and 12 children. What happens to you, it was not at first clear.

emergency center is not responding

That a private freighter, the sea fell rescue, may soon happen much more often. The European Union has decided to control and rescue mission "Sophia" for a further six months to continue, but without the ships. The use in the Central Mediterranean sea is limited, of late, on the Monitoring of the air.

The decision is controversial, but mainly because of the effective sea rescue is even more precarious. The Libyan coast guard, which is supported with European funds and to continue to receive ships, and Training, But particularly so in reality it is not. Rescue organisations report that often the answer is no one in the emergency center.
