Oil tanker rescues stranded migrants


Svein Kvalavaag, the captain of the Norwegian Siem Pilot vessel, said yesterday that he picked up 671 from two wooden boats north of the Libyan capital, Tripoli. Late last night, he was asked to take 99 more migrants who had been rescued by a Russian tanker. Mr Kvalavaag told the Norwegian industry site www.maritime.no that the 770 people included 140 women, of whom three were pregnant, and 45 children. They were all taken to the southern Italian island of Sicily.
