Marseille (AP) - The rescue ship Ocean Viking is back in service to pick up migrants from Libya. The ship left in Marseille in the evening, tweeted the aid organization Doctors Without Borders, which operates the "Ocean" together with SOS Méditerranée. "The ship will sail into the central Mediterranean, where people are fleeing Libya and drowning in search of safety." The "Ocean Viking" had rescued a total of 356 people in August, and then was stranded at sea for about two weeks. Malta had then temporarily accepted the migrants.
