Malta has authorized the rescue ship Alan Kurdi of the German aid organization Sea-Eye to moor with forty migrants on board. That has been explained by the Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. The people on board were rescued on Wednesday not far from Libya.

The immigrants will be taken care of in different member states of the European Union, says Muscat. None of them will stay in Malta.

The people on board were rescued by the Alan Kurdi on Wednesday and are from West Africa. Among them are also a pregnant woman, three children, a man with a bullet wound and two survivors of a bombing raid on the Tajoura detention center near Tripoli where 12 people died.

Italy refused to let the ship in earlier.
