Permalink Second uncrewed migrant ship emerges off Italian coast

Another uncrewed migrant ship with 450 migrants bound for Italy has lost power off the European country’s coast of Puglia. The Italian air force said Thursday that it sent forces onto the vessel through a helicopter to bring it under control. “Because of the difficult weather conditions, the ship can only be boarded from the air,” the air force said in a statement, adding that the vessel had no crew on board. The Ezadeen, sailing under the flag of Sierra Leone, was spotted 40 miles (65 kilometers) off Capo di Leuca, the tip of Italy’s heel, in choppy seas. This came days after Italian coastguards rescued hundreds of migrants, including Syrian refugees, from another ship found without any crew. Many of the migrants on the Moldovan-registered Blue Sky M cargo ship were treated for hypothermia and broken limbs.
