Twenty-seven unaccompanied migrant minors were allowed to disembark from the ship of the Spanish NGO Proactiva Open Arms, anchored off the Italian island of Lampedusa, the NGO said Saturday.
"They will be evacuated by the coast guards of Lampedusa"
"They will be evacuated by the Coast Guard of Lampedusa", a small island located between Sicily and North Africa, tweeted the NGO after Italy's far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini conceded reluctantly permission to disembark, while requiring that the 107 accompanied adults and minors remain on board.
Rectificamos, sólo autoriza el desembarco de los 27 menores that no van acompañados. https://t.co/RNROs7QRJa
