US Navy Confirms Mediterranean Rescue Operation

Jun 15, 2018
The U.S. Navy has confirmed that one of its ships was involved in a rescue operation in the Mediterranean.

The U.S. Sixth Fleet, which is based in Naples, Italy, said that the USNS Trenton recently "rendered assistance to mariners in distress that it encountered while conducting routine operations in the Mediterranean Sea."

It said 40 people were rescued and are being given food, water and medical care on board the ship. The Navy statement didn't say where the survivors would be taken but that "U.S. authorities are coordinating with our international partners to determine their ultimate disposition."

The incident was first reported by German migrant aid group Sea-Watch, which said 41 people were rescued and 12 bodies recovered during the operation.
