Migrant rescue NGO SOS Méditerranée launches new ship
Issued on: Modified:
In France, the NGO SOS Mediterranean has dispatched its new rescue ship Ocean Viking. The vessel has left the port of Marseille on its first mission to rescue migrants off the coast of Libya. It is set to replace the Aquarius ship after it was forced to cease operations because of what the group said was obstruction by some European countries. Valerie Dekimpe reports.
