French President Emmanuel Macron has accused the Italian government of "cynicism and irresponsibility" for refusing to let a stranded rescue ship packed with migrants dock in Italy.
A charity looking after the 629 migrants on the Aquarius, stranded off Malta, says two Italian ships will help take them to Spain's port of Valencia.
But Spain is at least three days' sailing away. Mr Macron said Italy was "playing politics" with the migrants.
French President has suddenly become the cock of the wall
Italy has had its full of so called refugees.
