Maltese authorities announced that four EU countries will take 64 migrants rescued at sea off Libya, adding, however, that the German-flagged ship Alan Kurdi carrying them won't be permitted in the island nation's ports, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

German NGO Sea-Eye that owns the ship with rescued migrants has previously urged Malta and Italy to open their ports for them, but Rome has refused to accept the vessel.

Malta and Libya have also refused to accept the rescued ship, noting that activists encourage human traffickers in the region.
