Italy transports migrants to Spain

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Italy has sent two ships to the 629 migrants on board a rescue boat off its shore to transport them to Spain, after Italy’s new populist government refused to take them. The migrants on board the Aquarius include 123 unaccompanied minors, 11 children and six pregnant women. Since we’ve been on air, the process of moving the migrants on to the Italian vessels has been completed.
