Irish Independent - - World News -

THE last refugee res­cue ship work­ing in the Mediter­ranean Sea, Aquar­ius, has ended her op­er­a­tions, French NGO Medecins sans Fron­tieres (MSF) said yesterday, blam­ing ha­rass­ment from Italy and other coun­tries. The de­ci­sion was the re­sult of a “con­stant den­i­gra­tion, smear­ing and ob­struc­tion cam­paign” against MSF led by the Ital­ian gov­ern­ment, the NGO said.
