Migrant rescue: Dozens evacuated from overloaded Banksy ship – BBC News

The Italian Coastguard has evacuated 49 migrants from a rescue ship in the Mediterranean, funded by the British artist Banksy, about 12 hours after it called for help.

The crew of the Louise Michel had said it was overloaded and could not navigate safely after rescuing 219 people in recent days.

The remaining migrants were later transferred to a larger vessel, the SeaWatch4.
