🆘~49 people in danger in #Malta SAR zone! The people are fleeing #Libya and are in distress on a overcrowded boat. They need immediate support. Authorities are alerted & we hope they’ll launch a search & rescue operation soon.
🆘 We just spoke to the 49 people in distress. They are still adrift & in need of immediate rescue! They also gave us an updated position showing they are deep in #Malta's SAR zone. Authorities are alerted & need to launch a search & rescue operation NOW!
⚠️16h since our first alert to authorities, ~49 people are still drifting in the Mediterranean Sea. No rescue has been launched yet. We urge #Malta and #Italy to fulfil their responsibilities to coordinate a SAR operation & to rescue now! #DontLetThemDrown #MigrantsLivesMatter
We have lost contact with the 49 people for many hours now. Both @PVolontaires & #SeaBird by @seawatch_intl monitored the boat this afternoon. We believe the boat has now been rescued but we have no clear information nor confirmation by authorities.

🆘~49 persone in pericolo nella zona SAR di #Malta!
Le persone, in fuga dalla #Libia, sono in pericolo a bordo di una barca sovraffollata. Necessitano di supporto immediato. Le autorità sono informate e speriamo che lancino una operazione di ricerca e soccorso il prima possibile.
Abbiamo appena parlato con le 49 persone in pericolo. Sono ancora alla deriva e chiedono urgente soccorso! Ci hanno dato una posizione aggiornata che mostra che sono ancora nella SAR di #Malta. Autorità informate. Va lanciata una operazione SAR ora!
⚠️16h dopo il primo allarme, ~49 persone sono ancora alla deriva nel Mediterraneo. Nessun salvataggio è stato avviato. Esortiamo #Malta e #Italia ad adempiere alle loro responsabilità coordinando un'operazione SAR per portarli in salvo! #DontLetThemDrown #MigrantsLivesMatter

🔴ULTIMORA! Sei naufragi e ~200 morti al largo della #Libia a settembre!

Centinaia di persone sono morte nel #Med centrale in pochi giorni. Ancora silenzio delle autorità europee. I sopravvissuti sono vivi grazie agli sforzi dei pescatori.
Grazie @RescueMed per la traduzione.
Come ad agosto, molti dei naufragi avvenuti a settembre non sono stati ammessi dalle autorità. Eccetto pochi casi, abbiamo saputo di queste tragiche morti in mare grazie ai sopravvissuti o ai coraggiosi pescatori che si sono rivolti ad Alarm Phone per far sentire la loro voce.
🔺1° naufragio: 22 morti, 45 sopravvissuti detenuti.
Il 14/09 IOM ha riportato il soccorso di una barca da parte della cd. Guardia Costiera libica. Troppo tardi per 22 persone, morte dopo il rovesciamento della barca. 45 sopravvissuti portati nel centro di detenzione di Zawiya.

🔴BREAKING! Six shipwrecks and almost 200 deaths off #Libya in September!

Hundreds of people have died in the Central Med over just a few days & again European authorities keep silent. Those who survived are alive only thanks to the efforts of fishermen.

As in August, most shipwrecks that happened in September were not recognised by any authority. With the exception of a few, we only heard of these tragic deaths at sea because traumatised survivors or brave fishermen reached out to #AlarmPhone to make their voices heard.
🔺1st shipwreck: 22 people died and 45 survivors detained.

IOM reported that on 14/09 a boat was rescued by the so-called Libyan Coast Guard. They arrived too late for 22 people who died after the boat capsized. The 45 survivors were imprisoned in the detention centre of Zawya.

🆘This morning, #AlarmPhone was alerted by some relatives about a boat with ~10 persons onboard, which departed on Monday night from Bab El Oued, in #Algeria. We informed authorities today at 3:20pm. @salvamentogov, the launch of a rescue operation is urgently needed!

No news concerning ~10 people in distress who left #Algeria on 21 September. We fear that they will have to survive a 4th night at sea. Relatives say they are on a white and blue wooden boat. @salvamentogob believe they are not in Spanish SAR zone yet.
Relatives keep calling us - they lost contact with their loved ones since Monday night. After we alerted authorities almost 24h ago, still no search and rescue in sight. We strongly ask @salvamentogob to search for them! We hope they are still alive.

🆘 Una barca con ~86 persone in pericolo rischia il naufragio tra #Libia e #Lampedusa! Non lasciateli annegare!

All’1:15 di notte siamo stati allertati da questa barca in fugu dalla zona di guerra libica. Da allora, nessuna reazione delle autorità.
Serve soccorso immediato!!! Image
L'Europa lascia in pericolo ~86 vite!

10h fa abbiamo allertato le autorità di una barca in pericolo. Nessun soccorso in vista. Un aereo di @Frontex li osserva. La barca si sta sgonfiando e l'acqua sta entrando. Le persone chiedono aiuto, sono in pericolo! Non lasciateli morire!
Siamo finalmente riusciti a parlare con la c.d. guardia costiera libica che abbiamo informato alle 1.15 di notte. Dicono di essere al corrente del caso ma di non aver mandato soccorsi.
Siamo in contatto con le persone, nel panico, senza cibo e acqua e poche speranze di soccorso!

🆘 Urgent! A boat with 86 people in distress is at severe risk of sinking between #Libya and #Lampedusa! Don‘t let them drown!

At 01:15am #AlarmPhone was alerted by this boat fleeing the Libyan war zone. Since then, no reaction by authorities.

The boat has to be rescued NOW!!! Image
Europe leaves ~86 lives at risk!

10h ago we alerted authorities to a boat in distress. Still no rescue in sight, only a @Frontex plane watches them from above. The boat is deflating & water is entering. The people call for rescue, they are in grave danger! Don't let them drown!
We finally managed to talk to the so-called Libyan Coastguard, who we informed at 1.15am. They said they are aware of the case but no rescue has been sent.
We are still in contact with the people in distress who are in panic with no water and food & little hope for rescue!
