Off the coast of Libya
The crew of the Irish Navy vessel LÉ Eithne rescued 593 migrants: from six separate vessels, 50 Nautical Miles north west of Tripoli [Libyan capital].
Operations by the LÉ Eithne have rescued 2,729 people since its deployment on May 16 to assist Italian authorities in search and rescue operations in Mediterranean.
Fair play, in fairness
