Rescue boat Aquarius finally docks in Valencia

Spain rescues more than 900 boat migrants, finds 4 bodies

At least 12 other people died when their dinghy capsized.

In addition, a new populist government in Italy - one whose interior minister has vowed to deport tens of thousands of migrants as soon as he can - will make any compromises on European Union migration policy even more hard. Lifeline's crew helped transfer the migrants onto a Singapore-flagged merchant ship, the Viking Amber, and remained at sea as it usually does for any subsequent rescues, according to Lifeline co-founder Axel Steier.

In a government statement, Spain expressed its gratitude "to President Macron for his cooperation" and insisted that "this is the framework of cooperation with which Europe must respond" to the migration crisis.

Nearly 60 percent of Italians are in favor of closing the country's ports, supporting Salvini's anti-immigration strategy, Ferdinando Pagnoncelli, president of polling company Ipsos Italia, wrote Saturday in Corriere della Sera, citing a survey conducted on June 12-13.

Kurz said Italy and Germany would be the other members of the troika.

The Italian government has said it will refuse to let in more refugees. Sanchez was traveling on another rescue group's boat alongside it.

It is precisely with Seehofer and his Italian counterpart that Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz says he wants to build an "axis of the willing" against illegal migration.

The first Italian government ship accompanying the migrant aid vessel Aquarius with 630 people aboard has docked at the Spanish port of Valencia, ending a weeklong perilous crossing of the Mediterranean. Malta refused the entrance, stating that it does not have anything to do with this particular rescue mission. The Dattilo, carrying some of the Aquarius migrants arrived earlier Sunday. They are due to arrive in Valencia tomorrow morning.

The head of Doctors Without Borders in Spain says he's glad that Spain has allowed an aid convoy with 630 migrants to dock but he's anxious about European nations closing their ports to those rescued at sea.

Nine rescue boats, a helicopter and an airplane from the European border agency, Frontex, are taking part in the operation.

Many of those undertaking the journey are fleeing from conflict or poverty at home. Through the first five months of 2018, some 35,455 migrants reached European shores, with 11,792 of them arriving in Spain.

The Aquarius case is important because it shows "that the European Union can not avert its gaze", Spain's Defense Minister Margarita Robles said in an interview with El Mundo newspaper on Sunday. The next two will follow in three-hour intervals, said Inigo Vila of the Spanish Red Cross.

Meanwhile, several hundred more migrants were aboard an Italian coast guard vessel off Sicily today.

Every migrant "will know if he has refugee status, if he is an economic migrant, and also, indeed, if he is guilty of certain offenses that make him liable to expulsion", she said.

Charities say the NGO boats are a vital lifeline, rescuing more than 88,000 people in the past two years, but critics say they are a pull factor, encouraging people to make the unsafe sea journey.

"It will be hard for Spaniards not to smile when they see these children disembark", he said".

Pope Francis referred to this week's standoff for the second time in as many days Friday, saying the Gospel teaches that it's wrong to leave migrants "at the mercy of the waves".

Conte, who heads the populist, anti-EU government that took over running Italy on June 1, echoed the politician he called "my friend Emmanuel". They will then hold a joint news conference.

"It never ends", said Moreno.
