The situation on board the Open Arms ship is becoming increasingly difficult

On Sunday, four migrants on board the Open Arms rescue vessel jumped offboard in a desperate bid to reach the Italian island of Lampedusa. Crew members of the Spanish rescue organization Proactiva Open Arms swam after them and brought them back to the ship. The Open Arms ship has been waiting for over two weeks for permission to disembark the over 100 migrants which it rescued from rubber dinghies.
