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.

(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.

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.

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

Watch Part 2, “Trapped and Forgotten” - http://bit.ly/1Cwjv9k Watch Part 3, “Escaping Hell” - http://bit.ly/1xCZ5nP As Libya descends further into civil war and lawlessness, migrants from Africa and the Middle East continue to journey to the country’s coast in search of smugglers to take them across the Mediterranean Sea and into Europe. Search and rescue operations by Libya’s coast guard are restricted due to diminishing resources, and have to contend with dangerous gangs of armed traffickers. Those rescued at sea by the coast guard are brought to detention centers, where they face deplorable conditions and are forced to remain for long periods of time. In some instances, migrants are detained by militias in unofficial prisons outside of government control. In part one of a three part series, VICE News is given access to chilling footage filmed by the Libyan coast guard, who have witnessed an influx of migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea, recovering hundreds of bodies of those who’ve drowned on their journey to Europe.

U.S. Navy ships USS Bataan (LHD-5) and USS Elrod (FFG-55) picked up 282 migrants in the Mediterranean Sea after receiving a report from an Italian military patrol plane that it had spotted six small boats. One of the boats was sinking. The distressed people were provided food, water, and medical attention. Five of the migrants were medically evacuated to Malta and 277 were transferred to a patrol vessel from the Armed Forces of Malta. - Sat June 7, 2014 Film Credits: Damon Moritz

With thousands of migrants making the dangerous sea journey from North Africa to Europe, Italy's Guardia di Finanzia, the protector of the country's borders, is finding itself in a new role. For several years now, the force has found itself at the forefront of rescue operations for those migrants making the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean sea. Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid has been on patrol with the unit at sea to see the guards at work.

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.

At least five African migrants drowned and 58 others were injured last week when their rickety boat capsized while on its way to Europe. It appears their supposed rescuers, members of the Libyan coast guard, were trying to capture them to return them to North Africa. Seth Doane reports.

As the large-scale flight from Africa continues, the Italian Coast Guard deployed four missions through the night on June 17, 2017, rescuing 546 African migrants struggling in the Mediterranean Sea. 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. Two were treated on the spot from gunshot wounds. PLEASE SUBSCRIBE, SHARE, COMMENT AND LIKE Thank you. Seriously, we appreciate it. Crime Watch

(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.

In the first six months of 2017, the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean from Libya to Italy dropped by around half. This drastic fall in numbers was likely a result of the $236 million deal signed in February, in which Italy funds and trains the Libyan coastguards to divert migrants right back to Libya. While the Italian government sees this as reason for celebration, the brunt of the migration crisis is now firmly on Libya. This is a problem given that the UN-backed Libyan Government of National Accord doesn't have the means to effectively handle migrant trafficking and relies on the country's 1,700 militias to do the job for them. By outsourcing this work to armed groups who themselves are implicated in smuggling, a bloody power struggle has erupted. Vice News Tonight was the first foreign media to reach Libya's migrant smuggling epicenter of Sabratha, and met the migrants caught up in the mayhem.

(19 Jul 2016) Thousands of migrants and refugees were being rescued on Tuesday 20 miles away from Libya on international waters by warships from the EUNAVFOR MED (European Union Naval Force Mediterranean), Italian Marine and NGOs Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Migrant Offshore Aid Station MOAS, Sea Watch (Germany), Proactiva Open Arms (Spain). EUNAVFOR MED is also known as Operation Sophia. The migrants and refugees originated from Eritrea, Nigeria, Somalia, Gambia, South Sudan, Pakistan , Egypt, Mali and elsewhere. They were mostly on board rubber dingys, with one group on a wooden vessel. One Eritrean refugee told AP Television one thousand and thirteen people from Eritrea and Somalia were aboard the wooden vessel.

(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.

(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.
