Migrant rescue ship docks in Malta following standoff

Migrant rescue ship docks in Malta following standoff

The Mediterranean rescue ship Aquarius on Wednesday arrived at Valletta harbor in Malta to disembark 141 migrants.

The ship’s arrival ends a five-day tug-of-war between European Union countries which had seen the vessel banned from docking in several ports.

The ship, run by the Franco-German charity, SOS Mediterranee, and Doctors without Borders (MSF), was allowed in after France, Germany, Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain agreed on Tuesday to take in the migrants.
