Italy applauds Libya's decision on migrant 'search and rescue' zone

The Italian government on Sunday welcomed Libya's decision to bar foreign vessels from a stretch of water off its coast, as two more international charities halted search and rescue operations in the area.

Libya's navy ordered foreign vessels last week to stay out of a coastal "search and rescue zone" for migrants headed for Europe, saying the measure was aimed at non-governmental organisations it accuses of facilitating illegal migration. Source: AFP / File.
