BBC helps rescue Syrian refugees

September 17 - BBC Chartering's vessel BBC Iceland has helped to rescue more than 300 Syrian refugees found in fishing boats off the Sicilian coast of Italy.

As it was in close proximity to the scene, the BBC Iceland received orders from the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) in Rome, to remain on standby and assist the operation if needed.
All of the refugees could not be taken onboard coast guard vessels and 134 Syrian men were transferred onto BBC Iceland, proceeding to the port of Pozzalo, Sicily, where the refugees were safely transferred to a tugboat, Citta di Augusta.
