The inhumane cruelty of people smugglers whose businesses are able to operate because Europe’s weak border rules make trafficking profitable is demonstrated frequently across the Mediterranean, and Europe as a whole. People smugglers on a boat headed to Italy from Turkey left many children dead of thirst earlier in the month. Two children from Syria, aged one and two, were killed by smugglers near Pozzallo.
Open Arms picked up around 60 people in recent days. It is also believed that they are children. A photographer from the Associated Press witnessed the operations and claimed that many migrants threw themselves into open water while being picked by the vessel of NGO vessels. This makes it harder to bring them aboard. According to the NGO, it had not yet found a European Union port where the migrants could be dropped off, but claimed Malta refused access.
