A cargo ship understood to be carrying around 700 migrants arrived in the Italian port of Gallipoli on Wednesday.

Italian authorities had taken control of the ship at sea after the crew abandoned it. It had been set on a route to crash into the Italian coast.

Most of those on board the vessel – called Blue Sky M – were thought to be Syrians and Kurds.

It is not clear where the boat had set off from although there were unconfirmed reports it was from Turkey.
