Tensions rise aboard the Ocean Viking, still waiting for a port of landing. Last night a man jumped into the sea. Sos Mediterranee made it known, explaining that the crew rescued him and is out of danger. “He was saved a week ago from a boat in danger – explains the NGO -. He said: ‘If I knew where and when I will disembark I could resist. But I can’t resist uncertainty'”. The 572 migrants, rescued in various rescue operations in the central Mediterranean, and on board the ship for days, are awaiting the assignment of a port of disembarkation. “We have many children and many women on board – says a rescuer -. All the survivors have suffered torture and violence in Libya. They are at the end of their psychological and physical energies. In recent days the weather conditions have been very bad and now the heat it’s really intense. Food supplies are running out. We ask the European authorities for a safe haven. “
