Reports have it that migrants onboard Sea-Watch vessel have started accepting food after refusing eating. After being stranded at sea for up to 18 days, Sea-Watch reported through Twitter, of people refusing to eat.
According to the rescue vessel, migrants stranded off the coast of Malta, started eating again after refusing food since no European ports offered them a safe port.
The boats rescued a total of 49 migrants and have been refused permission to dock in Italy and Malta. The boats are located just off the coast of Malta.
The migrants have been in the middle of the Mediterranean, because European ports refuse their entry and do not allow Sea-Watch vessel to dock in any European port.
The migrants on board started to eat again according to another tweet, but were upset with European countries that have blocked their attempts to dock on shore.
The German government said Monday that it was still looking for a port for the rescue ships. Government spokesman Steffen Seibert called for “a permanent, European, united solution, and to not restart new negotiations with every new ship that brings refugees to a Mediterranean port,” according to dpa.
