Following the end of operation by search and rescue ship Aquarius, which saved tens of thousands of migrants from drowning in the Mediterranean, 170 migrants are feared missing after 3 survivors were picked up by helicopter.

MSF and its partner SOS Mediterranee said they were forced to terminate its operations due to a “smear campaign” by European governments.

The ship had been blocked at the French port of Marseilles since it lost its Panamanian registration at the end of September.

The Aquarius was the last charity rescue ship operating off of Libya. Last year there were five groups running rescue ships.
