The humanitarian NGO, Alarm Phone, announced on Twitter that 43 migrants in the Maltese SAR zone are at risk of dying and that over the next hours, there will be a storm with waves 2m high.

Alarm Phone said that it was alerted by people in distress at sea, in international waters close to the Malta SAR zone. The NGO has already informed the authorities but cannot reach a European “Rescue” Coordination Centre

“We have tried to get through to RCC Malta but either they fail to pick up or immediately hang up and MRCC Rome says that we should continue to try,” said the NGO.
