At sea: witnessing rescue efforts for hundreds of Mediterranean migrants

Italian Guardia di Finanza' s Search and Rescue operation saved more than 200 between Somalians and Eritrean migrants in the last few days. Language barrier and high waves made the rescue operation difficult. Once approached, the migrants were scared, tired, and rushed to be saved, which could have caused the small rubber dinghy to capsize. Thanks to the Italian rescuers efforts, all 234 migrants, among who were also injured men and pregnant women, arrived safe on the ship. Al Jazeera correspondent Hoda Hamid reports from the Mediterranean sea.
