A new migrant caravan consisting of around 1,100 people started its journey towards the US from San Pedro Sula in Honduras.
The rescue ship operated by Open Arms was denied permission to dock at ports in Italy and Malta. The refugees were rescued from near the Libyan coast
This followed hostile action by US border authorities on Sunday, who teargassed the migrants, including women and children
Using tear gas and rubber bullets, a Libyan coastguard team, on November 7, forced at least 79 refugees and migrants to disembark from a vessel that had rescued them from drowning in international waters.
