At least 750 people were rescued Saturday from three small boats in international waters near the Libyan coast by a ship operated by Doctors Without Borders, a spokesman told AFP.

“Over 750 people have been rescued since 5:00 am (0300 GMT),” Yazan al-Saadi, MSF’s regional communications officer said in Beirut.

He said a fourth rescue operation by MSF’s Bourbon Argos search-and-rescue vessel was currently underway.

In videos sent to AFP by MSF, hundreds of people in brightly-colored clothes are sprawled out on the ship, some hugging and clapping.

Children can be heard crying in the background.
