Tanker hijacked by rescued migrants arrives safely in Malta

VALLETTA, Malta (AP) – A Maltese special operations team yesterday boarded a tanker that had been hijacked by migrants rescued at sea, and returned control to the captain, before escorting it to a Maltese port. Armed military personnel stood guard on the ship’s deck, and a dozen or so migrants were also visible, as the vessel docked at Boiler Wharf in the city of Senglea. Several police vans were lined up on shore to take custody of the migrants for investigation. More details in Friday’s Borneo Bulletin
