Rescued migrants disembark from Open Arms in Lampedusa: TV

AFP  |  Rome 

Over 80 migrants rescued at sea by the Open Arms late Tuesday began disembarking from the charity rescue vessel in Italy's Lampedusa island after Italian justice ordered they be brought ashore, television images showed.

The boat had spent six days anchored off Lampedusa before a local prosecutor Tuesday ordered their disembarkment amid a probe of far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for forbidding their entry to port.
