(ANSA) - Rome, March 27 - Pope Francis has reportedly
criticised the fact that the Open Arms NGO-run migrant-rescue
ship has been blocked in the port of Barcelona by the
authorities.
"Keeping the ship stationary is an injustice," Francis told
Spanish journalist Jordi Evole in a meeting in Rome on Friday
when asked if he knew the Open Arms was held up in the port of
Barcelona, Avvenire.it reported.
"Why do they do it? To let them drown?".
The Open Arms was involved in one of a series of lengthy
standoffs that took place last year after Interior Minister and
Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini closed Italy's ports to NGO-run
search-and-rescue ships.
