Migrants were seen lying on the floor of an NGO ship, as hundreds remain stranded in the Mediterranean Sea, as footage published on Wednesday shows.

The footage published by the NGO Open Arms shows people on the deck of the ship, lying on blankets and clothes, as the sea gets stormy.

Currently, over 500 migrants are stranded in the Mediterranean Sea, with the UN urging neighbouring countries to allow them to disembark, fearing worsening of weather conditions.
