MSF Forced To Terminate Search & Rescue Operations In The Mediterranean.

: 12/07/2018 - 10:13

The medical charity MSF says it's been forced to terminate its search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean.

It says a sustained campaign of obstruction by the Italian government brought about the decision to withdraw its rescue vessel Aquarius.

Over 2 thousand migrants have died trying to cross the Mediterranean this year.

Tom De Kok who's on board the Aquarius says forcing the MSF vessel out of the region will mean more lives are lost.
