Watch: Three migrant groups leave Malta

Three migrant groups have left Malta and are headed for Germany, Lithuania and Rumania.

In a statement, the government said that these migrants were rescued by the Armed Forces who performed rescue operations on five separate occasions.

In the first rescue operation last August, Malta intervened to bring back on land 356 immigrants, according to an agreement with the European Commission that the migrants will all be relocated to a number of EU member states.

In two other rescue operations last summer, the Armed Forces brought to land migrants aboard the Alan Kurdi, belonging to the NGO Sea Eye.

The migrants that left Malta for Germany, Lithuania and Rumania were assisted by local authorities, the International Organization for Migration and officials from the three countries.
