A group of 105 migrants are believed to be stranded in Malta’s search and rescue area and in need of urgent help, according to the NGO Alarm Phone.

In a twitter post uploaded two hours ago, the NGO said that the migrants had been at sea for three days after their engine stopped working.

“They are urgently asking for help,” Alarm Phone said.

“We alerted the so-called Maltese coastguard and the Italian guardia costiera demanding urgent rescue.”

 

A spokesperson for the NGO was quoted saying that a number of children were among the group which had also run out of food and water.

This isn’t the first time that the NGO has accused the AFM of ignoring its communications.

Lovin Malta has reached out to the Armed Forces of Malta for comment.
