Migrant rescue boat heading to aid of anti-migrant vessel in Mediterranean

Migrant rescue boat heading to aid of anti-migrant vessel in Mediterranean

Defend Europe then posted its own statement, claiming that reports of trouble were overblown. However, according to an NGO called Sea-Eye, it had been contacted by the EU Naval Force's Operation Sophia with the message that the C-star was floating off the coast of Libya and unable to move.

They purchased the C-Star through the Defend Europe crowdfunding campaign in July, which they said would help them intercept NGOs bringing refugees to Europe.

When the rescue boat arrived at the stranded ship, the crew of the C Star refused help.

Since 2014, charity groups have been operating rescue ships that have pulled tens of thousands of migrants from overcrowded and unsafe boats to safety. The banner the group proudly unfurled on the boat earlier this month plainly states, "You will not make Europe home".

"Since our vessel the Sea Eye is closest to the C-Star, we were instructed by the maritime rescue coordination center in Rome, the emergency service for the western Mediterranean, to go to its aid", Sea Eye said. After explaining the issue, they concluded "t$3 he problem is about to be resolved".

Sea-Eye Chairman Michael Buschheuer said, "To help those who are in distress is the duty of everyone who is at sea - no matter their origins, skin color, religion or views".

'Se Queda' - Liverpool troll Barcelona and Pique over Coutinho
The summer transfer window , as it always does, has left the Premier League's biggest clubs in a precarious position. Coutinho, who joined Liverpool from Inter Milan in 2013, hadn't publicly agitated to leave before Friday.

"C-Star developed a minor technical problem during the night", a spokesperson said, saying that its engine was stopped so it could be fixed.

"This meant that under under [international regulations] the vessel is considered 'not under command'".

DUBAI: A German refugee rescue ship has been sent to the aid of a vessel crewed by far-right anti-immigration activists that is stranded in the Central Mediterranean, The Independent has reported.

"This problem is about to be resolved".

Generation Identity - the European element of a broader grouping called the Identitarian movement - claims that NGOs in the Mediterranean are not in fact rescuing refugees but are instead part of an illegal human trafficking operation.
