Watch : 51 Lifeline Immigrants embarking on a voyage to France

51 of the immigrants who entered Maltese ports aboard the ship Lifeline made their way to France today.

This was announced in a tweet by the French embassy in Malta, in which photos of immigrants ready to board the plane were shared.

In a separate tweet, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat explained that the aforementioned is part of an agreement ad hoc between 9 countries.

He remarked that responsibility sharing and sending immigrants back to their country can be done in a humane and effective manner.

After 6 days at sea, the 234 immigrants aboard MV Lifeline were allowed to sail into Maltese ports on the 27th of June.
