The Sea-Watch 3 charity ship carrying dozens of migrants rescued off Libya forced its way into the Italian port of Lampedusa on Friday night after a lengthy standoff, the charity said.
Sea-Watch spokesman Ruben Neugebauer told AFP the boat's German captain Carola Rackete, 31, was arrested and the 40 migrants were still on board after the vessel docked.
After manoeuvring the ship into port without permission, Rackete was arrested by police for refusing to obey a military vessel, a crime punishable by between three and 10 years in jail. She offered no resistance and was escorted off the vessel without handcuffs.
I’m a Jewish historian. Yes, we should call border detention centers “concentration camps.”
It isn’t just accurate. It’s necessary. This week, conservatives weaponized Jewish suffering to divert discussion from the massive human rights abuses occurring at our border. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), daughter of the man who called torture “enhanced interrogation,” scolded Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for using the term “concentration camp” to describe the growing civilian detention system, including the reopening of Fort Sill, previously a Japanese American internment camp, to hold children.

MILAN (Reuters) - Italian police arrested on Saturday the German captain of a migrant -rescue ship at the centre of a standoff with the Italian government after she docked at the port of Lampedusa. The Dutch-flagged Sea-Watch 3, operated by German charity Sea-Watch, has been at sea for more than
The ship docked despite the best efforts of a coastguard boat to prevent her from doing so by sailing back and forth between the vessel and the pier, according to the Repubblica daily.
While five European countries on Friday agreed to take in the migrants, permission for the Dutch-flagged Sea-Watch 3 to enter port and disembark the migrants did not come.
Sources at the interior ministry, headed by Italy's far-right Matteo Salvini, had said he was waiting for precise guarantees on "numbers, timelines and means" of the migrant redistribution.
In the meantime, prosecutors in Sicily launched a probe into Rackete on suspicion of aiding illegal immigration.

"It's been almost 60h since we declared a state of emergency. No one listened. No one took responsibility. Once more it's up to us, to Cpt. #CarolaRackete and her crew, to bringing the 40 people to safety," the charity said on Twitter.
With Italy restricting port entry, the Dutch-flagged vessel had been stuck in the Mediterranean, during a heatwave, since rescuing 53 migrants drifting in an inflatable raft off the coast of Libya on June 12.
The most vulnerable people onboard were evacuated, but Salvini insisted the rest were unwelcome.

'Price to pay'
But migrants are continuing to arrive in Italy, even if not in the same numbers as during the period between 2014 and 2017.
Nearly 500 migrants have landed on the country's coast over the past 16 days, according to the Italian interior ministry.

"If I have to pay the price through prison time or a fine in order to save the lives of some people, then I will do so," the group's founder Oscar Camps told AFP by telephone.
The Open Arms ship took to the waters off the Libyan coast on Thursday, a decision which could already cost it a fine of up to 900,000 euros ( $1,023,000) from the Spanish government, Camps said.
