Italy migrants: Police arrest rescue ship captain at Lampedusa

Carola Rackete steered the Sea-Watch 3 into the port after a two-week stand-off with Italian police.

Her vessel, which rescued 53 migrants off the coast of Libya on 12 June, did not have permission to enter the port.

Wearing handcuffs, Ms Rackete was escorted from the ship and taken away by police.
