the hague - After MSF (ASG), Save the Children has also decided to suspend the rescue mission for migrants on boats in the Mediterranean.

As a reason, the organization calls 'the uncertainty that involves recent developments'. The organization's ship Vos Hestia will reissue 'once there are clear safety guarantees'. Until that moment, the ship will moor on Malta.

Save the Children says Sunday in a communiqué, 'with deep regret', decided to shut down. 'We feel the duty to ensure the safety of our team and the rescue operation before we can continue with the mission as we think. The safety of our staff and crew is paramount, 'said part of the statement.

On Saturday, AzG already took the same decision because the relief organization thinks 'no longer safe to work because Libya is threatening internationally with international aid organizations.'
