France will open Marseille to Ocean Viking (7)

Either on Wednesday night or Thursday says interior min source

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 8 - France will open the port of Marseille to the Ocean Viking, one of three NGO run migrant rescue ships currently in a standoff with Italy over disembarking migrants, a French interior ministry source told ANSA Tuesday.
    France "is gearing to open the port of Marseille to the Ocean Viking ship, either in the night of Wednesday-Thursday or in the day of Thursday," the source said.
    "It will depend on when it leaves the southern Mediterranean".
    The Ocean Viking, a humanitarian ship chartered since July 2019 by the French SOS Méditerranée association, has been at sea waiting to be assigned a port of safety for almost three weeks with 234 people on board.
    Two other charity ships are in Catania port having been allowed to land only the most vulnerable of their human cargo. (ANSA).
