Migrants say goodbye to crew members as they disembark from the Aquarius rescue ship after it docked at Bolier Wharf in Senglea, Malta, on August 15, 2018. The Aquarius, chartered by French group SOS Mediterranee along with Doctors Without Borders (MSF), arrived in Malta on August 15 after EU countries thrashed out a deal to take in the 141 migrants onboard, defusing another diplomatic standoff. The Aquarius had rescued the migrants off the coast of Libya in two separate missions on August 11, only for Italy and Malta to refuse access to their ports. / AFP PHOTO / Matthew Mirabelli
