A ship carrying 629 migrants rescued while trying to cross the Mediterranean is stranded at sea after being turned away by both Italy and Malta.

The Aquarius, which has more than 120 children and seven pregnant women onboard, saved hundreds from drowning in international waters on Saturday, but neither Rome nor Valetta has so far allowed it to dock.

The two nations are currently locked in a standoff, with Italy’s new interior minister Matteo Salvini threatening to bar all rescue ships from docking in the country’s ports unless Malta takes on the Aquarius.

Salvini reportedly sent a letter to the Maltese authorities saying he would ‘be forced to close Italy’s ports’ if the 629 migrants saved by the charities SOS Mediterranee and Doctors Without Borders weren’t allowed to land at Malta’s capital Valletta.

Italy’s interior ministry said they had so far been unable to confirm the existence of the letter.
