The SOS Méditerranée Association’s ocean rescue ship Ocean Viking launched its second rescue mission in the Mediterranean on Monday in two days. On Sunday, a humanitarian ship affiliated with the International Committee of the Red Cross and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) rescued 70 migrants in the same area.

The abductees included two women, a child and 47 minors

The 94 migrants rescued on Monday morning were aboard a heavily loaded boat in international waters off Libya. SOS Méditerranée said in a statement that they included two women, a one-year-old child and 47 orphans. “During the operation, a Libyan patrol boat approached the Ocean Viking, which during the first rescue operation caused concern about the victims of the shipwreck,” said the association, which is headquartered in Marseille, southeastern France.

The Mediterranean Sea is the world’s most dangerous migration route, according to the International Organization for Migration. The UN estimates that there have been more than 23,500 deaths and disappearances since 2014, including 2,048 last year.
