Doctors without Borders rescue 230 migrants at sea, to dock in Italy

Jan 26, 2023

Rome [Italy], January 26: Doctors without Borders (MSF) saved 230 migrants and refugees, including more than 80 minors and one baby, from the Mediterranean Sea in three operations that spanned only a few hours. The aid group helped 69 people from a rubber dinghy on Tuesday evening and 61 people from another small rubber boat on Wednesday morning onto its rescue ships, according to the organization. Another 107 people were later taken in from rubber dinghies. The operations took place in international waters near the Libyan coast. After the first rescue, Italy assigned the city of La Spezia in the northern region of Liguria as a port for the ship to dock. The Geo Barents resisted the order to sail directly toward La Spezia after the first mission, because it received a distress call, the aid group said. So it turned around and came to the aid of more migrants. (dpa)
