The Ocean Viking ship docked at the port of Brindisi for the disembarkation of 261 people, including 68 unaccompanied minors, rescued in recent days in various operations in international waters off the coast of Libya.
Before going down there will be a preliminary health check and then the migrants will be subjected to identification procedures.
The reception machine is coordinated by the Prefecture with the help of 118, the Red Cross and Civil Protection. The ship was initially headed to Ortona, but the destination was then changed due to worsening weather conditions.
