The migrants that recently took over the Vos Thalassa were evidently aware Italy’s new populist government’s stance to refuse entry to migrants and instead hand them over to the Libyan coastguard.
African migrants threatened to kill the crew of the Italian cargo vessel that had rescued them in the Mediterranean.
Expecting to be transported to European welfare havens and be given free benefits and accommodation, the migrants attempted to stage a mutiny by threatening to kill the crew because they were told they’d be sent back to Libya.
The fact that migrants are threatening to kill the people who “rescue” them proves that the whole process is not really a rescue at all, but a taxi service from North Africa to Europe.
Fabrice Leggeri, the head of the European Union’s border agency Frontex, previously slammed charities for rescuing migrants off the coast of Libya, some as near as just 10 miles off the coast, because it has incentivized people smugglers and put lives at risk.

This from Breitbart:
Libyan Coast Guard spokesman Admiral Ayoub Qassem said: “The tugboat, which had been hired by Libya for logistics operations supporting some oil platforms off our coasts, intervened to rescue 63 people aboard a wooden boat.”
The migrants grew increasingly aggressive and threatened to kill the crew “because they did not want to return to Libya in any way” when they saw the boat, “forcing it to head north”, he added.
“We did not want to do anything that could further degenerate the situation. Our priority was to ensure the safety of the crew and all the other people,” Qassem told Italian Journalist Agency (AGI), adding he feared the incident could be the first of many “migrant revolts” to come.
On Monday the migrants were passed over to an Italian coastguard boat, which intervened after being alerted to a “situation of serious danger for the security of the [Vos Thalassa] and its crew … caused by attitudes threatening the crew by some migrants”, according to a statement.
Italians can thank globalist George Soros for the migrant crisis. The billionaire elitist has an extensive open borders networking running through the country. Check that out on the next page:
