The rescue ship “Sea-Watch 3” of the humanitarian organization Sea Watch International has rescued almost a hundred migrants from the Mediterranean in the last few hours, some of whom are in a sensitive state of health after being burned by the fuel fire.
The injured were identified in the second and largest rescue operation, in which volunteers from the organization took more than 60 people from a wooden boat, including “many children,” he said on his Twitter account.
The organization had previously confirmed the rescue of 33 other people, including three children.
All of this happens amid the arrival of more than a thousand migrants on the Italian coast of Lampedusa, on one of the most crowded days of the year, as the Italian news agency ANSA again quoted by DPA.
The Italian Ministry of the Interior recorded around 27,000 arrivals this year, compared to 13,300 in the same period last year.
