According to MANA, the Phoenix rescue ship, operated by the Malta-based non-governmental organization MOAS, rescued more than 300 people from three boats in international waters off the coast of the Libyan city of Sabratha.
Migrants arriving in Italy on boats from North Africa are up some 30 percent so far this year, according to official data released last week.
