3000 refugees rescued off Libya coast: Italian coastguard

An official with the German NGO Jugend Rettet, which participated in the operations, said a further 1,000 people remained to be rescued from inflatable dinghies as rescue ships had reached capacity.

Police said Sunday that the three were "members of a human traffickers' network" and that 13 of the migrants they were holding were fellow Pakistanis, three of them minors.

In one operation, it rescued 134 people, all from sub-Saharan counties, he said. #EU states keep their blind eyes turned. However, over 650 people have died or gone missing since January 1.
