Reading Time: < 1 minute


Forty migrants rescued by a German NGO vessel will be allowed in to Malta and then redistributed among EU member states, a government spokesman told Times of Malta late on Saturday.

The Alan Kurdi was given permission to disembark its rescued passengers after the German government and European Commission stepped in to coordinate a redistribution deal.

In a tweet, the Prime Minister of Malta said that all persons will be distributed among a number of EU member states.

Outgoing European Commissioner Dimitri Avramapolous commended Malta for its role in this operation and thanked Germany, France, Portugal and Luxembourg for their support in their operation.
