KARL AZZOPRDI AN Armed Forces patrol boat rescued a group of 49 migrants who were stranded on the rocks be- neath the cliff face at Għar Lapsi. The migrants are believed to have disembarked from their boat onto the rocks but could not make their way up because of the area's topology. There were 39 men, four women and six minors aboard the boat. A police spokesperson said they received a call at around 1:30pm flagging the arrival of the migrants in the area. No information on the nationality of the mi- grants, their condition and the exact number has so far been made available. An army dinghy was used to approach the cliff face and transport the stranded migrants to a wait- ing patrol boat. The rescue operation was ham- pered by the rough sea. Police officers were also on site at the top of the cliff. The rescued people were taken to Boiler Wharf, and immigration police will be investigating the case. A pregnant woman was also transferred to Mater Dei Hospital for further observation. In February, a much smaller group of migrants were found walking on a road leading from Żurrieq to Għar Lapsi. It was thought they had made it to Malta after crossing the Mediterranean from Libya. Direct arrivals in Malta are not common and most rescues happen out at sea. Between January and July, around 270 migrants were brought to Malta after being rescued at sea.
