Sea rescuers bring more migrants ashore in Sicily

In Sicily, the Italian authorities have allowed nearly 360 boat migrants from the sea rescue ship “Geo Barents” to go ashore. The aid organization Doctors Without Borders, which operates the ship, said on Monday that 214 people would have to remain on board.

The authorities allowed the “Geo Barents” to enter the port of Catania on Sunday to take women, children and the injured overboard after an inspection. The crew had previously rescued the migrants from distress in the Mediterranean Sea.

The German “Humanity 1” is still in Catania with 35 migrants on board. The SOS Humanity ship should have sailed again, but the captain refused. The 59-year-old captain justified this by saying that a rescue mission is only over when all the shipwrecked are in a safe place.
