They brought the migrants ashore at a military base near the capital Valletta, authorities said on Monday.

A volunteer organisation, Alarm Phone, on Sunday morning said the dinghy was overcrowded and taking in water.

It said the boat was located within Malta’s search-and-rescue region.

A Maltese patrol boat rescued another group of 63 migrants and brought them to Malta on July 17.

One of those migrants later tested positive to COVID-19 and the medical authorities put the whole group in quarantine.
