The ‘Ocean Viking’ rescues another 34 migrants located in the Mediterranean by a sailboat

MADRID, Sep 10 (EUROPE PRESS) –

The ship 'Ocean Viking', operated by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and SOS Mediterranée, has boarded 34 more people on board who had previously been rescued by a sailboat in the Mediterranean, with 84 migrants and refugees await on board the landing at a safe harbor.

Organizations have reported on social networks that 34 people who had been located at sea by a sailboat named 'Josefa' are now aboard the 'Ocean Viking', after a worsening of weather conditions.

The sailboat crew, 14 meters in length, could not attend rescued people, including a pregnant woman and a one-year-old child.

In addition to the 'Ocean Viking', the 'Alan Kurdi', from the German NGO Sea Eye, also awaits port. This organization has shared on Twitter a message from the Italian Coast Guard in which it is denied entry into Italian waters, under the law promoted by former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

On board the 'Alan Kurdi' there are only five of the 13 rescued migrants, after Malta authorized the landing of several groups for humanitarian reasons. The NGO warned of the conditions on board after a Tunisian teenager tried twice to jump overboard.
