Over 100 illegal migrants rescued off Libyan
A total of 110 illegal migrants have been rescued off the Libyan coast by two human rights organisations.
SOS relief organisation reports that the Ocean Viking ship rescued 37 illegal migrants, including two women and 12 children.
The organization pointed out that there are serious cases among migrants as a result of a fire that broke out on the boat, resulting from the explosion of fuel barrels loaded on board the boat.
For its part, the Geo Barents ship operated by the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders said that it had rescued 73 illegal migrants who were on rubber boats in the Mediterranean, of different nationalities.
