    Spanish naval ship saves 651 migrants off Libya


    The Associated Press | Published — Sunday 7 May 2017

    MADRID: A Spanish navy ship rescued early Saturday 651 migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean from North Africa to Europe, said Spain’s Defense Ministry.

    It said the frigate Canarias, participating in a joint EU mission, made the rescue off the coast of Libya. The ministry said the rescue operation was carried out “in complete darkness” and that the migrants were from several different sub-Saharan countries.

    Canarias has saved 1,958 migrants in less than three months patrolling the Mediterranean.

    Hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees have crossed the Mediterranean Sea in smugglers’ boats in hopes of a better life in Europe, but thousands die each year in those treacherous waters. Lawless Libya is one of their prime launching points.
