Among the Rescued were eleven women, Disabled people, two babies, five children and eight unaccompanied young people, with a shared Sea-Watch on Wednesday. The distress boat had previously been around discovered 30 miles off the Libyan coast, of a civilian reconnaissance aircraft.

would have suffered exhaustion, dehydration and seasickness, said Sea-Watch. The authorities in Malta, Italy and Libya have been informed about the rescue. The Netherlands, under whose flag the rescue ship "Sea-Watch 3" drives, had been informed.

Twelve days of 47 refugees at sea

in Italy, persevered Minister of the interior Matteo Salvini of the right-wing Lega responded immediately. He warned the civilian rescue vessel in front of it, to approach the Italian territorial waters. "Our ports are, and will remain closed", confirm it. Salvini bans since he took office a year ago, private aid organizations, with their ships in Italy.

In January, the "Sea-Watch 3 had to remain" the twelve days of 47 refugees on Board in the Mediterranean sea, because Salvini refused the landing. Only after other European countries to absorb the refugees had agreed that they were allowed to go in Sicily to the mainland.

The EU has set the rescue of Refugees in the Mediterranean sea for the time being. Also, most aid organizations can't get their rescue missions due to the politically desired hurdles upright. Also, the "Sea-Watch 3" could only leave on Saturday after nearly three months, the port of Marseille for their Mission. Many migrants drown in the Mediterranean its often not seaworthy boats, most of the while attempting the Crossing from Libya to the EU. The UNHCR therefore speaks of "the deadliest sea crossing in the world".
