At least 400 refugees are stranded in the Mediterranean Sea, as European officials are denying rescue ships permission to come to shore. Many of those stranded migrants were evacuated from another ship, funded by British street artist Banksy, who is accusing officials of ignoring distress calls from rescue vessels. In related news, at least three refugees died this weekend when a boat carrying around 20 people caught on fire on the southern coast of Italy.
