Italy’s Salvini Blocks Migrant Rescue Ship Again as Spain Balks

Italy's Salvini Blocks Migrant Rescue Ship Again as Spain BalksItaly’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini told a humanitarian ship carrying 141 migrants rescued Friday off the coast of Libya that “it can go anywhere, but not Italy,” setting up another clash with other European states about who should take the boat. “German ownership, rented by a French NGO, foreign crew, in Maltese waters, carrying the Gibraltar flag,” Salvini said in a post on Twitter Monday. Salvini’s refusal to accept the same boat, the Aquarius, in June when it was carrying 629 migrants set up a clash with other European nations about how to handle the 300,000 migrants who have landed on Italian shores since the start of 2016.
