At least 750 people were rescued Saturday from three small boats in international waters near the Libyan coast by ships operated by Doctors Without Borders, a spokesman told AFP.
"Over 750 people have been rescued since 5:00 am (0300 GMT)," Yazan al-Saadi, MSF's regional communications officer said in Beirut.
He said a fourth rescue operation was currently underway.
