A handout photo dated 12 August 2019 and made available by SOS Mediterranee 19 August 2019, showing rescue vessel Ocean Viking rescuing a group of migrants off the coast of Libya in the Mediterranean.

The vessel, that has been at sea for 10 days, rescued a total of 356 migrants in three rescue missions.

Over 500 refugees on two NGO vessels – Opean Arms and Ocean Viking –  are still waiting to be allowed at land while Italy and Malta have denied them access to their harbours.
