Rescued migrants attempt suicide on board Ocean Viking

(STL.News) A humanitarian ship in the Mediterranean has declared a state of emergency.  Crew members on board the Ocean Viking say they can no longer guarantee the safety of the 180 migrants and refugees they’ve rescued.  Many are dangerously distressed as Italy and Malta continue to refuse to let the ship dock.
