Migrant Rescue Ship Arrives In Malta, Ending Standoff


According to Reuters, the Mediterranean rescue ship Aquarius arrived at Valletta harbor in Malta on Wednesday to allow 141 migrants to get off. This ended the five-day tug-of-war among European Union countries, which had seen the vessel banned from docking in several ports. The ship was allowed in, after France, Germany, Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain agreed on Tuesday to take in the migrants, who were rescued off the coast of Libya.
