40 migrants, including two pregnant women and seven children, who were in distress at sea were rescued and brought to Malta earlier today.

Armed Forces of Malta picked up the migrants earlier today despite delaying the rescue mission, according to a spokeswoman from the NGO Alarm Phone, who claims to have notified AFM about the incident on Sunday at 5:10 p.m.

 

“At 9.15h CEST we talked to the people on the boat again. They are still in distress in SAR zone – since yesterday no action has been taken to rescue them. About 32 lives, including many children, are in danger. We demand immediate rescue! ” the NGO posted on Twitter.

Despite the perilous conditions, those onboard (including pregnant women and children) had to spend the night at sea before AFM rescued them today.
