Sete offers to accept migrant rescue vessel

France 24, Aug 14

The director of Sete port said that he would be prepared to let the French rescue vessel Aquarius dock there, if the government gave the all clear.

The operators of the migrant ship Aquarius on Monday called on Europe to find a safe haven for 141 people it rescued in the Mediterranean, saying Italy and Malta had again refused to let the vessel dock.

The Aquarius, which was left stranded with 630 migrants on board in June after being turned away by Rome and Valletta, resumed rescue operations off the Libyan coast last week.
