The German sea rescue ship "Sea-Eye 4" is allowed to dock in Sicily with 87 refugees on board after almost two weeks of waiting.

The Italian authorities assigned the rescuers to Pozzallo in the south of the Mediterranean island as a safe haven, as the Sea-Eye organization announced in the evening.

The ship is scheduled to reach Pozzallo on Friday.

The "Sea-Eye 4" brought the people from North Africa on board more than a week ago.

The organization from Regensburg said it had been trying to land in Malta for days.

The people were found on the high seas in a zone in the central Mediterranean for which the island state is responsible.

Malta refused, which is why Italy was then contacted.
