#NewsUpdate - Tánaiste Simon Coveney hopes Ireland's decision to take 25 migrants from a stranded rescue ship will encourage other EU countries to do the same.

As The Irish Examiner reports, MV Lifeline, which is carrying 234 rescued migrants, has been stranded off the coast of Malta for several days.

The Maltese government has now agreed to allow the Lifeline to dock, after Ireland and other countries agreed to house some of the migrants.

The ship had been barred from a number of European ports over the last week.
