Private migrant rescue service afloat in Med


A philanthropist couple has bought a ship to rescue migrants from boats in the Mediterranean according to Reuters.

Christopher and Regina Catrambone, based in Malta, responded to an appeal by the Pope after several hundred African migrants drowned off Lampedusa in October. The Migrant Offshore Aid Station includes a 43m ship, the Phoenix1, professional crew, paramedics, dinghies and drones. The group will ask Italian and Maltese rescue centers where to take rescued migrants.
