Malta grants entry to German Sea-Eye boat with 40 migrants | DW | 03.08.2019

Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat announced Saturday that 40 migrants aboard the NGO ship Alan Kurdi would be allowed to disembark in Malta, following a request from Germany. The announcement came after Italian authorities at Lampedusa denied the rescue ship permission to enter the port earlier this week.

A German-flagged NGO rescue ship carrying 40 migrants has been given the all-clear to dock in Malta. The vessel Alan Kurdi set sail for the Mediterranean island group after being turned away by Italian authorities.
