On Tuesday, Godetia, the command ship of the Belgian Navy achieved a total of 422 migrants rescues. All those clandestine immigrants  will be handed over  to the Italian authorities.

Half of the migrants were found in the Mediterranean Sea in two inflatable boats.

Since May 25, it has been the fourth intervention for the Triton migrants rescue operation, which has rescued 981 people in total.
