The charity Proactiva Open Arms operates in the sea between Libya and southern Europe in a mission aimed at aiding migrants who have found themselves in trouble during an attempt to cross the sea from northern Africa.

The 87 people were rescued from an inflatable raft which was floating directionless with a broken motor in the open sea on Aug. 2, Open Arms said.
