Immigrants, believed to be from North and East Africa, were in a wooden boat facing drowning, the military spokesperson said.

Malta led the European Union’s efforts to distribute migrants rescued in the Mediterranean between several member states after Italy refused to allow rescue vessels to enter its ports.

Demetris Aframopoulos, EU Commissioner for Migration, visited Malta on Tuesday and hailed the island’s handling of irregular migration across the Mediterranean.

“There is no doubt that Malta faces great challenges in terms of migration compared to the size of the population,” Avramopoulos said.
