Reports of two incidences of migrant vessels in distress

Earlier today I reported on two incidences of migrant vessels in distress at sea. After making our way to an area approximately 30NM off the coast of Libya we received confirmation from the Italian Coastguard that people onboard both vessels had been rescued – the first by a Singaporean Flagged commercial vessel, TORM ARAWA, and the second by an Italian naval vessel (name not known). No confirmation of numbers of people rescued or reported deaths given.

Although unreported, there have been several vessels in the Mediterranean found in distress at sea this past week. The good weather looks set to return tomorrow therefore the Sea Watch expects to be on hand to give assistance where needed in the coming days.
