MSF Twitter Feed: The Aquarius received supplies, coordinated by #Italian Rescue authorities. The intention of the Italian MRCC is to transfer some people from the #Aquarius to Italian ships & head to #Valencia, #Spain together. #MSF calls for people’s safety to come before politics.
This plan would mean already exhausted rescued people would endure 4 more days travel at sea. The better option would be to disembark the rescued people in the nearest port after which they can be transferred to #Spain or other safe countries for further care & legal processing
