The first group of migrants have been transferred from the 'Aquarius' to an Italian coast guard vessel. The group consisted of 90 migrants, with more than 400 people remaining to be transferred according to an initial plan. Some 500 migrants were expected to be transferred to Italian navy and Coast guard vessels. The migrants will be taken by the Italian Coast guard to Spain, but it was not yet clear if they will be taken there directly, or how the rest of the 629 will reach the Spanish mainland. Home Affairs Minister Matteo Salvini told Italian media that a second humanitarian ship, the 'Sea Watch 3', which is currently navigating off the Libyan coast, will not be allowed into Italian ports, if and when it is involved in a migrant rescue operation. On June 12 at 4:30 p.m. the 'Sea Watch 3' said it was heading towards a shipwreck 20 miles from Libya in which 12 migrants were killed. A further 41 people had been rescued by a US Navy vessel.
