Greek special forces to intercept ship carrying 600 illegal invaders that issued SOS off coast of Corfu ‘because of armed men on board’

Greek special forces are set to intercept a ship carrying up to 600 illegal immigrants that issued a distress call off the coast of Corfu earlier today.

Someone on the vessel, a Moldovan cargo ship called Blue Sky M, called emergency services claiming that there were armed people on board.

Blue Sky M, last tracked northwest of Corfu, was headed to Croatia when it sent out the distress call, but tracking services show that the ship has made a sharp turn, setting course towards Italy.
