An AFM patrol boat has rescued 80 migrants from a dinghy and brought them to Malta. 

The AFM said it was informed of the presence of the dinghy in Malta's Search and Rescue Region earlier today (Monday).

A King Air aircraft located the craft, which was later intercepted by Patrol Boat P-51.

It was decided that the dinghy was not in a position to continue its voyage and therefore the migrants - 56 men and 24 women - were transferred onboard P51 and brought to Malta

Their arrival follows the rescue of two groups of migrants, totalling 160, last Wednesday.
