Last night, we were contacted by a boat in distress coming from Libya, carrying 47 people, many from Libya but also from elsewhere, including Syria, Algeria, South Sudan, Morocco and Palestine. We alerted the Aquarius of SOS MEDITERRANEE to the situation and eventually they were able to find and rescue the people. They are now heading north to Europe, to find a place of disembarkation. We want to thank SOS MED for their courageous rescue operation and wish them all the best in their quest to find a safe harbour somewhere in Europe.
