Migrants hijack ship off the coast of Malta

554 Malta Migrants

 

A Maltese special operations team boarded a tanker to retake control after it was hijacked by a group of migrants that it had rescued at sea. In all, the Turkish tanker had rescued 77 men, 19 women and 12 minors. Once brought into port, armed military personnel stood guard on the ship's deck while several police vans were lined up on shore to take custody of the migrants for investigation, and five migrants were led off the ship in handcuffs.
