Reading Time: 1 minute

A migrant rescue ship which was waiting outside Lampedusa is heading to Malta, hours after a separate vessel which defied Italy and entered port was denied permission to disembark its passengers.

German humanitarian group Sea-Eye said on Saturday evening that its rescue ship Alan Kurdi with 65 rescued people on board was sailing towards Malta.

It had earlier been on its way to Lampedusa, where on Saturday an Italian rescue ship with 46 migrants on board docked without incident against an explicit ban after declaring a state of emergency
