A migrant boat in the Mediterranean Sea off Libya’s coast was in distress with an estimated 150 people on board, activists said on Monday.

On Tuesday the migrants on the boat were picked up by a merchant ship and taken back to Al-Khoms in Libya, dpa reports.

The migrants on board were allegedly told that the merchant ship would take them to Rome, the aid organization Alarm Phone wrote on Twitter.
