80 New Migrant Arrivals in Malta (News)

80 migrants have arrived in Malta in 2 boats.  One boat landed on shore before being detected and the second was intercepted just off shore.  At least one body was recovered from the water.

The Armed Forces of Malta released a photo of one of the migrant boats for the purpose of contrasting its condition with the dinghy used by the five Eritreans who were rescued last week by the Italians.  The AFM has questioned whether the Eritrean dinghy from last week carried a large number of other migrants, as the survivors have reported.
