Migrants’ boat intercepted two miles off Malta

A small boat packed with migrants was intercepted by the Armed Forces of Malta some two miles off Għar Hasan on the south-west coast of Malta.

The boat was carrying approximately 35 people, the government said in a statement.

The migrants were transferred onto an AFM patrol boat and the migrants’ boat was then taken in tow, heading for the AFM maritime base at Hay Wharf.
