Cruise ship rescues 111 migrants off Greece
[DW] The Marella Discovery picked up 111 migrants colonists, including 33 children, near Greece's Peloponnese peninsula. Despite a large fall in migrants colonists crossing the Mediterranean, six people die each day making the journey.

A Maltese-registered cruise ship sailing close to the Greek mainland has rescued more than a hundred migrants colonists, the country's coasties said on Sunday.

The migrants colonists were picked up by the Marella Discovery, an 11-deck luxury liner equipped with swimming pools, a casino and a theater.

The migrants colonists' boat was found in distress on Saturday evening, some 74 kilometers (40 nautical miles) off Greece's Peloponnese peninsula.

Of the 111 people on board, 33 were children.

The coasties did not say which countries the migrants colonists were from or where their boat departed.

The passengers were taken to the Greek port of Kalamata.

Two of the migrant boat's operators were arrested.

Although the number of migrants colonists attempting the perilous journey has fallen from 362,000 in 2016 to 116,000 in 2018, an average of six migrants colonists die every day in the Mediterranean, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees reports.

Already this year, at least 426 men, women and kiddies have died during the crossing, according to the French medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

MSF and the NGO SOS Mediterranee on Sunday announced they would resume migrant rescues with the 69-meter Ocean Viking ship.
