New migrant rescue ship leaves France on first mission off Libya
[PULSE.NG] Humanitarian group SOS Mediterranee on Sunday dispatched its new rescue ship Ocean Viking from the French port of Marseille on its first mission to save migrants colonists off the coast of Libya.

The group had halted its missions with its Aquarius ship in December 2018 after they said it was blocked by some EU governments following nearly three years of operations and the rescue of 30,000 migrants colonists at sea.

Libya, caught up in civil conflict since the 2011 uprising killed dictator Moamer Qadaffy, remains a major and dangerous transit route for mostly sub-Saharan migrants colonists trying to cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
EU states disagree on how to handle the migrants colonists and some are taking a more hardline position, turning away rescue ships as they seek to dock to drop off rescued migrants colonists.

The Ocean Viking, the successor to the Aquarius, left Marseille at 2000 GMT, according to an AFP journalist aboard the vessel.

The Ocean Viking, displaying the red and white colours of its new Norwegian flag, is expected to reach the central Mediterranean in two to three days.

"A lot of (migrant) crossings are taking place right now, that's related to the summer weather conditions but also to the situation in Libya, which has become a real trigger and explains why people are taking even more risks than before," Frederic Penard, the rescue group's operational director, said.

#1 Rescue? It's people trafficking.

It picks them up from Libya then takes them far away from the nearest port.
