An interesting turn of events in the Med

Just a day after the announcement that the EU was pulling it´s rescue ships out of the Med, some "refugees" de-facto pirated a ship and have demanded to be taken to Europe.

The ship was recaptured by the Maltese AFM and the "refugees" taken to Malta.

It may have been conisidence but the timing is very close. This may well be the future of people smuggling.
