Italy bans more migrant rescue boats

Italy bans more migrant rescue boatsItaly’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini on Saturday warned another migrant rescue mission off the Libyan coast that it would not be allowed to land its “human cargo” at an Italian port. The new rightwing and anti-immigrant Italian government last week banned the French NGO operated vessel the Aquarius, with more than 600 rescued migrants on board, from docking in Italy, causing uproar and a sharp spat with France. Spain subsequently offered to take the Aquarius and it is expected at the port of Valencia on Sunday.
