Migrants rescued off Libyan coast
 
03:41
(22 Jul 2016) More than 100 migrants were rescued on Friday from their sinking rubber boat in Libyan territorial waters. The rescue operation was a collaboration between Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), the nongovernmental organisation Proactiva Open Arms and the Norwegian Border Patrol. The operation was also accompanied by a helicopter and a warship from EUNAVFOR MED (European Union Naval Force Mediterranean). For the past year, EU naval vessels in the Mediterranean have been working to intercept smuggling boats in a programme called Operation Sophia. According to the International Organisation for Migrants, more than 240,000 migrants have reached Europe by sea in 2016 and nearly 3,000 people have died in the attempt.

Migrants Rescued After Boat Catches Fire In the Mediterranean
 
00:48
Dramatic footage captured by the Portuguese Air Force shows the moment a migrant boat becomes engulfed in flames while drifting across the Mediterranean Sea. All 34 migrants were rescued and taken ashore after the rubber dingy exploded off the Spanish coast. The flaming vessel was spotted by a Portuguese crew during a surveillance mission for FRONTEX, the European border and coastguard agency. The cause of the explosion and the nationality of the migrants currently remains unknown. On Tuesday, the United Nations said the number of migrants dead or missing in the Mediterranean has climbed to more than 1,700. Just last week, 34 migrants died after their boat was hit by a wave which tipped nearly 200 people overboard into the Mediterranean. http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/30/europe/migrant-boat-fire-med/index.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Surviving One of the Deadliest Routes to Europe: Refugees at Sea
 
31:40
Desperate to escape conflict and poverty, thousands of migrants and refugees attempt the perilous journey to Europe each year, with many crossing the Mediterranean Sea from North Africa in rubber dinghies and wooden boats. In the wake of the decommissioning of Mare Nostrum, a search and rescue operation run by Italy, the humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), launched their own vessel, named the Bourbon Argos, to find those stranded at sea and save those in trouble on one of the deadliest routes to Europe. On board the vessel, refugees and migrants are provided with medical aid, food, and shelter, then brought safely to Italian shores. Having survived life in Libya, ruthless treatment by smugglers, and horrific conditions aboard flimsy boats, once aboard the Bourbon Argos they face yet more uncertainty as they approach Europe. VICE News teamed up with MSF to document these search and rescue missions in the Mediterranean and speak to rescued refugees and migrants, hearing about the suffering they have endured in their attempts to reach a new life.

🇮🇹  🇱🇾 Rescue at Sea: Migrants in the Mediterranean | People and Power
 
25:01
As long as there is war, poverty and insecurity in Africa and the Middle East, migrants and refugees will try and seek a better life in Europe. For many years now, one of the principle transit routes has been the dangerous sea crossing over the Mediterranean between Libya and Italy. Images of anxious people crammed into small and manifestly unsafe boats run by human traffickers have become sadly familiar around the world, as have the stories of sinkings and drownings that tragically are regularly attendant on these journeys. As a result, and against a background of hardening anti-migrant sentiment in Europe, the problem of how to best respond to and control this phenomenon - and reduce the number of fatalities - has become ever more hotly debated. For the last five years, EU navies have maintained a presence in the area to discourage people from making the journey. And since 2017, the Libyan coastguard, with the active support of the Italian government, has also become more active, mounting aggressive patrols off its long coastline. Both the EU and Libyan authorities insist their actions save lives and disrupt the criminal networks that feed off the migrants' desperation. But their methods, focused mainly on deterrence, policing and security are increasingly at odds with those of other groups operating in the area since 2014 - NGOs running maritime search and rescue (SAR) missions to aid migrants in peril. In August 2017, Italy asked all NGOs working in the area to sign a code of conduct, which in effect put strict legal and logistical constraints on their ability to operate. As a result, by mid-2018, only four NGOs were left pursuing SAR missions in the Mediterranean and there had been a number of highly charged stand-offs with the authorities. In March for example, after a tense altercation between Libyan coastguards and a vessel from Proactiva Open Arms involving 218 migrants and refugees, the NGO's ship was impounded in a Sicilian port for a month, with the crew held under investigation by the Italian authorities for allegedly "conspiring to facilitate illegal immigration". Then in June 2018, Italy refused to let the Aquarius - a ship run by SOS Mediterranee and Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) - disembark 600 rescued migrants in Italian ports. When Malta also declined to accept them it became a Europe-wide dispute. Eventually, the migrants were off-loaded in Spain, but this and other incidents had a chilling effect on NGOs and for a time left the Libyan coastguard as almost the only rescue option in Central Mediterranean waters. Much of the opposition to the NGOs' activities seems to stem from a belief that their presence encourages migrants to embark on journeys they would otherwise avoid, or even, in the words of Italy's controversial new Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, that they act as a "taxi service". The NGOs reject this claim entirely, but it highlights the fundamental differences between humanitarian groups seeking to save lives on the open seas and those focused on trying to dissuade people from making the treacherous crossing in the first place. It also raises serious questions about the way that long-standing international maritime norms on nautical rescue are allegedly being ignored - with sometimes fatal consequences. What is clear is that when no-one is available to help those in peril, lives will be lost. In November 2018, the UNHCR said that more than 2,000 refugees and migrants have died on the Mediterranean route this year and that the number of drownings has escalated sharply. In September alone, the refugee agency said one of every eight people making the dangerous journey towards Italy had been killed. This, it said, was due in part to the "legal and logistical restrictions that have been placed on a number of NGOs wishing to conduct search and rescue (SAR) operations." While the agency acknowledged the efforts of the Libyan coastguard in saving lives where it could, it added that any vessel with the capability should be allowed to come to the aid of those in need. Moreover, anyone rescued in international waters should not be taken back to Libya where conditions are not safe. With access to both sides, we sent filmmaker Paula Palacios to investigate the background to this complex debate and what may happen next.

At one point, it looked like desperate migrants were going to swarm the rescue boats, forcing the coast guard to pull away. The Guardia Costiera brought them ashore at Pozzallo, in southern Sicily. 16 of the migrants were hospitalized — 13 pregnant women, one diabetic child, one with an infected bite and another with neurological problems, authorities reported.

Spanish NGO vessel rescues more than 100 migrants off coast of Libya
 
02:32
(6 May 2018) A Spanish nonprofit dedicated to helping migrants at sea on Sunday rescued 105 migrants in the Mediterranean, north of Libya. Proactiva Open Arms found the migrants drifting at sea in a motor-less rubber boat. The migrants told an Associated Press photographer onboard who documented the rescue that human smugglers sailing in a separate boat removed their boat's engine half way through the dangerous Mediterranean crossing and left. Among those rescued were eight women and six children. Fifty-four migrants originated from Bangladesh, 19 from Morocco and 12 from Egypt. There were also migrants from Nigeria, Pakistan, Sudan, Eritrea, Senegal, Libya and Ghana. Favorable weather appears to have sparked the surge in sea crossings. Each year, tens of thousands of migrants attempt to reach southern European countries by crossing the Mediterranean in smugglers' boats. Most of the vessels are unfit for open water, and thousands of migrants drown each year. The UN says 615 migrants have died crossing the Mediterranean so far this year. A total of 22,439 migrants have reached European shores, with 4,409 arriving in Spain, through the first four months of 2018.

Spanish rescue group helps migrants in distress at sea
 
00:55
The vessel, run by Spanish humanitarian group Proactiva Open Arms, rescued the migrants, including five women, a nine-year-old child and three teenagers, off the coast of Libya. Mr Salvini claimed the boat should go to Malta, the nearest port. But Malta swiftly pushed back, with its interior minister contending the tiny Italian island of Lampedusa, south of Sicily, was closer. Salvini has vowed that no more humanitarian groups' rescue boats will dock in Italy. In recent years, private rescue vessels brought many of the hundreds of thousands of migrants saved from smuggler boats to Italy.

Libyan coast guard rescues 115 migrants from sea off the coast of Libya
 
02:20
(18 Jun 2018) The Libyan coast guard on Monday rescued 115 illegal migrants off the coast of Libya, who were stranded in the sea,128 kilometres (eight miles) north of the Abu Kammash area, 150 kilometers (93 miles) west of the capital Tripoli. Commander of coast guard vessel Captain Rami Al-Hadi said the coast guard rescued immigrants from different African countries, including two children, 22 women, from a rubber boat. He added that five bodies had been recovered near the dilapidated boat. According to Al-Hadi, after humanitarian and medical assistance being provided at Tripoli naval base, the migrants will be handed over to the immigration control. The issue of illegal immigration has been exacerbated since 2011, as smugglers take advantage of the chaos that prevails in Libya to transport tens of thousands of migrants each year towards Europe.

The birth went quite well but the mother had been on a dinghy with about 140 people on it, very overcrowded, she had two other children who were sick, and at that time she was in labour, everyone's vomiting, there was seawater and diesel in the boat which together can burn skin, so that wouldn't been a good place for the baby to be born, and luckily he had the good timing to be born on the ship." 6.

People are beaten, people are kept in detention centers, people are in indentured servitude, people are forced into prostitution, they go through horrific things." 16.

Doctors Without Borders, one of the operators of the rescue ship Aquarius, said the boy was born to Nigerian parents in international waters Monday morning. He was named Newman Otas. Sarah Giles, a Doctors Without Borders doctor who helped deliver the baby, said it was "normal birth" in "really extraordinary circumstances." Parents Otas and Faith and older brothers Victory and Rollres were rescued from a rubber boat trying to cross the Mediterranean from Libya a day previously. The baby's mother said she was panicking before the rescue that she would go into labour, and had been having contractions for three days. The Aquarius broght back 391 migrants brought back a total of 391 migrants including the baby. There were 292 males, 99 females and 154 minors - many of whom were unaccompanied. The Aquarius is a joint operation by rescue group SOS Mediterranee and the medical aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) operating in the Mediterranean Sea in the so called 'Search and Rescue' (SAR) zone, where most of the migrant boats are rescued. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/e507a875d148df926663e072cf2f9558 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

Over 1,000 migrants rescued in the Med
 
02:03
(21 Jul 2016) Rescue boats recovered the bodies of 17 migrants and plucked 1,128 survivors from the Mediterranean Sea, south of Sicily on Thursday, a day after 22 corpses were found at the bottom of a smugglers' boat. The Italian coast guard, which coordinated Thursday's rescues, said the operation took on survivors from five rubber dinghies, a larger boat and two small boats. The rescues took place as a separate vessel was bringing the 17 bodies discovered a day earlier at sea near Sicily, where the corpses were expected to arrive on Friday. Meanwhile, the humanitarian organisation, Doctors Without Borders, said the bodies of 21 women and one man were found in a pool of fuel at the bottom of another smugglers' boat. That same rescue effort saved 209 people who were aboard two rubber dinghies. By Thursday evening, the coast guard reported that nearly 1,700 migrants had been rescued in a two-day period. Vessels from non-government organisations, national military fleets and passing cargo ships have been rescuing migrants daily over the past two years from unseaworthy smuggling boats launched from Libya's lawless shores.

Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN In the middle of the Mediterranean sea, recent history is repeating itself... Less than two months after multiple EU nations refused to allow rescue boat Aquarius to dock on their shores, the humanitarian ship is again faced with closed ports.... This time, with 141 people on board. The vessel rescued the distressed migrants off the coast of Libya last week... The humanitarian organizations operating the ship accused the Libyan coastguard of refusing to inform them that nearby boats were in distress... a decision they say has disasterous consequences. SOT, Aloys Vimard Doctors Without Borders Project Coordinator: "Our concern is that now it is discouraging ship masters from their duty, because it`s a duty of any ship master at sea to rescue people that are in distress at sea. So today we can see that ships are changing their course not to render assistance".Since early 2016, the Aquarius has helped close to 30 000 migrants at sea... many of them were brought safely to Italy until this summer, when Rome shut its ports to all NGO rescue boats. The Italian government has instead encouraged Libyan authorities to carry out rescue operations. On Saturday, via his Facebook account, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said his government''s new approach to migration has already borne its fruitSOT Giuseppe Conte: In the first two months of our governance, compared with the same period last year, boat arrivals have deacreased by 85%. In June Italy and Malta refused to let the Aquarius, with 629 people on board, dock on their shores... provoking an EU-wide crisis over the bloc''s migration policy. Though Spain finally agreed to take in the boat, this time around a solution is yet to be found.

Spanish NGO rescues migrants in Mediterranean

(6 Apr 2017) A Spanish non-governmental organisation on Thursday rescued 230 migrants making the journey across the Mediterranean to Italy. Two boats - one rubber and one wooden - were rescued by Proactiva Open Arms about 56 miles (90 kilometres) north of Sabratha, Libya, a few hours after the engines broke down and left the migrants adrift at sea. Among the rescued were 10 women, one of them pregnant. The majority of the migrants were from Bangladesh, Cameroon, Eritrea, Pakistan and Togo. The Spanish rescue team onboard Golfo Azurro were taking the migrants to the Italian island of Sicily, where they were expected to arrive on Saturday morning.

NGO helps rescue migrants in Mediterranean

(3 Feb 2017) The number of migrants risking their lives to cross the Mediterranean sea surged on Friday as calm waters encouraged smugglers who had waited days for bad weather to clear, an NGO operating in the area said. Doctors Without Borders said in a tweet that their rescue boat north of the Libyan coast was operating over capacity and holding 720 migrants after five rescues. The Aquarius was receiving assistance from a another vessel operated by Proactiva Open Arms, a Spanish NGO, that rescued 222 migrants, including one baby and two children, from two boats on Friday. There were more boats in the sea, said the Proactiva Open Arms spokeswoman Laura Lanuza. The migrants, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, were being transferred to an Italian port in Sicily, Lanuza said.

MSF vessel rescues migrants in Mediterranean
 
04:45
(23 Jun 2016) More than 130 migrants were rescued from choppy waters in the Mediterranean Sea on Thursday after they were found floating off the coast of Libya during a joint rescue operation by Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) and SOS Mediterranee (SOS Mediterranean). Packed into an overcrowded inflatable raft, the desperate group were dragged aboard the 'Aquarius' ship and given medical treatment. 38-year-old Liberian migrant Musa Fafani was one of the 132 migrants making the perilous journey. He said he'd made the trip after he lost his family during the Ebola crisis. The rescue operations were part of efforts that on Thursday alone saw some 4,000 migrants saved, according to the Italian coast guard. The Italian navy said a new wave of migrant smugglers' boats that set out from Libyan shores and needed rescuing includes 31 rubber dinghies. A navy statement says five of its boats helped in the rescue of 14 of the dinghies, for a total of 1,800 men, women and children saved. Migrants aboard the other dinghies were rescued by vessels from the Italian coast guard, a European anti-smuggling naval deployment and ships operated by private aid organisations. Authorities say Libya-based smugglers concentrated the departures of boats crowded with migrants in a single day because rough seas earlier in the week had prevented launching the unseaworthy fleet.

Spanish ship rescues migrants crossing to Europe
 
03:52
(7 Sep 2017) The number of Europe-bound migrants rescued on the main Mediterranean Sea route has dropped off dramatically this summer, but hundreds still risk their lives to cross. The more than 200 migrants onboard a rescue vessel run by Spanish humanitarian group Proactiva Open Arms on Thursday were rescued the previous day from several flimsy dinghies that human smugglers had launched from Libya's shores. As of Sept. 3, almost 99,846 migrants migrants were rescued on the Libya-Italy sea route this year, compared with the 121,385 taken off smuggler's boats during the same period of 2016, according to the United Nations migration agency. Backed by Italy, the struggling government in Tripoli has paid militias implicated in trafficking to now choke off the migrant boat flow, militia and security officials told The Associated Press recently. Italy also has trained and equipped Libya's coast guard to drive back the smugglers boats. Still, some smugglers' boats are launched. Wednesday's rescue took place in waters somewhat to the east of the area where traffickers had launched most of their earlier trips. Different alternate routes seem to be emerging daily. "They (the smugglers) wanted to take us out from Sabratah but it wasn't possible", says Abdellah Guerrdom, a refugee from Morocco. "That's why it took us two months. Then a man came and said things aren't easy, that they were looking for a solution and finally there was a solution." So the smugglers went more East towards Tripoli, Guerrdom says. Gambian refugee Bamodou Toure, who lived in Libya for two years, says Libyan authorities and militias make it more and more difficult to cross. He tried several times to cross the Mediterranean Sea but got caught twice and sent back to a detention centre.

The coast guard said it coordinated 40 separate Mediterranean rescue operations on Thursday. One operation involved a motorized rubber dinghy where, authorities say, a woman's body was found. More details weren't immediately available. The high numbers are being attributed to a break in several days of bad weather and rough seas which had kept smugglers, largely based in Libya, from launching boats with migrants and asylum seekers, fleeing conflict and poverty for Europe's southern shores. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: [email protected] (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Europe has been sending more rescue vessels to prevent migrants from drowning in the Mediterranean.
