<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 29th March 2021</b> <i>Case name</i>: 2021_03_29-CM393 <i>Situation</i>: 120 travellers from Zuwara probably rescued by Open Arms <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Central Mediterranean Sea <i>Summary of the Case:</i> In the early morning of Monday the 29th of March the Alarm Phone was called by a worried relative of a traveller on a boat in distress. The relative told us that there were 120 travellers on board, they had departed from Zuwara and the last GPS position he had received was in Maltese Search and Rescue zone. The relative had lost contact with the boat and was asking for urgent help. Soon after, at 05:18h CEST we sent an email alerting about the case to the Italian and Maltese coastguard as well as to UNHCR and NGO boat Open Arms. Around 09:28h our shift team called the Italian coastguard asking about this and other ongoing cases however, the officer did not give us any information. While we were never able to receive confirmation we think that this boat was probably rescued by the NGO boat Open Arms.
