Groups working across the Mediterranean Sea on Wednesday rescued some 750 migrants traveling in packed rubber boats off the coast of Libya. The latest rescue comes as the European Union scrambles to find a viable solution to the migration crisis.
The Aquarius rescue ship, which is run by SOS Mediterranee and Doctors Without Borders, rescued 297 people from three rubber boats.
“Late this afternoon the Aquarius rescued a further 136 people, including 14 pregnant women and 33 minors from a rubber boat,” Doctors Without Borders posted on Twitter.
