Richard Gere and Matteo Salvini clash over migrant ship

Richard Gere right talks with migrants

The Open Arms boat said it made its latest rescue on Saturday in worldwide waters in the central Mediterranean, where it has been stranded for nine days after Italy and Malta denied it entry.

"We can not evacuate 39 people and tell the rest that they have to stay", Camps said.

"These are extraordinary people, they are so strong, they have been such through such horrors", Gere said about his visit on the Open Arms.

However, Open Arms had instead rescued the migrants itself overnight.

A Spanish humanitarian ship that has been stuck at sea for more than a week because of Italy's refusal to let it disembark 121 migrants said it has rescued 39 more people, further complicating conditions on board.

The Spanish NGO clearly did not see eye-to-eye with the government on the issue, writing on Twitter that it was unacceptable that Malta take on only 39 migrants and leave the other 121 on board its ship. This has created a serious security problem aboard.

"Malta has offered to transfer these 39 migrants aboard an AFM vessel and disembark them in Malta", the government said, explaining that the rescue happened in an area of Malta's responsibility.

Malta could "only shoulder its own responsibility since other solutions are not forthcoming", the government said in the statement on Saturday.

A new Italian law permits fines of up 1 million euros ($1.1 million) against the owners of rescue ships operated by nonprofit groups that enter Italy's waters without permission.

Though the sentence potentially could have amounted to hundreds of years, prosecutors had been seeking. "Not a friend of mine". In an earlier message on Facebook and Twitter , Patti had recognized Trump for his support and kind words.

He compared the political situation in Italy, where League leader and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has repeatedly refused requests by migrant ships to dock, to that of the US administration of Donald Trump.

'Italy is not legally bound, nor disposed to take in clandestine, unidentified migrants from on board the Ocean Viking, ' Salvini said.

However a commission spokesperson admitted Friday that no mediation effort was under way in Brussels to allow the Open Arms group to disembark on dry land in Europe.

Geer was due to attend a press conference in Lampedusa on Saturday, August 10, ANSA said.

Since nine days the "Open Arms" crosses with refugees on board in the Mediterranean Sea. "And it will stop if we say stop", he said, adding that he only wanted to help people and not get into a political fight. "Their passage from their home counties to Libya, what they had to endure, the women above all". The men tortured in prison, not just once but multiple times.

'Most people refer to them as migrants, but for me they are refugees that are running from a fire, ' he said.

The Italian government needed to stop "demonising people", the actor said.

"This has to stop everywhere on this planet now". Of those, 576 were on the perilous central route from Libya.
