Forty migrants aboard a German NGO rescue ship arrived in Malta on Sunday after Italy refused to let them land and a distribution agreement was made between several EU countries. The Alan Kurdi ship, run by charity Sea-Eye, had rescued the migrants off the Libyan coast on Wednesday but Italy's far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini denied the boat the right to use Italian ports. The boat instead travelled to Malta.
