For two weeks, dozens of refugees are waiting in front of the Italian island. In the early morning, two of them are allowed on board for medical reasons. But the stalemate for the Sea Watch ship continues.

The stalemate over the ship of the German aid organization Sea-Watch in front of Lampedusa in southern Italy continues. During the night on Friday, a 19-year-old passenger and his minor brother were allowed to land on medical grounds, as the crew reported.

There are still 40 migrants on the “Sea Watch 3”. As a statement of solidarity, five Italian MPs stayed overnight on the ship, including former Transport Minister Graziano Delrio of the Social Democratic PD and former Left leader Nicola Fratoianni.

On Friday morning, another refugee boat arrived in Lampedusa with about 15 people. The ship was able to enter the port unhindered, reported the Italian station Tgcom24. The financial police had taken the passengers at the pier in receipt.

The “Sea Watch 3” was retracted on Wednesday despite a ban in the Italian territorial waters around Lampedusa and is since then within sight of the port. An attempt on Thursday to head to the dock was ended by Italian security forces. The migrants had been rescued from the Libyan coast more than two weeks ago. They are exhausted according to the crew.
