Not sure how much coverage there has been in the US Media about the illegal migration issues in the Mediterranean. Anyway this is from the Guardian, got to love the French!

The Royal Navy flagship HMS Bulwark was ordered to Malta to join search-and-rescue operations after the deaths of up to 800 people last weekend in the worst single tragedy in two years in the Mediterranean.


David Cameron also said two smaller cutters or patrol vessels would be sent as well as three Merlin helicopters fitted with advanced radar systems capable of spotting small craft at sea from a range of 100 miles.


Germany offered one frigate and 10 ships while France was said to have committed a plane for a fortnight in September and a patrol boat for the month of November.
