An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is brought in to land on the flight deck of the Phoenix I, the expedition vessel of the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) project, south of Malta, during the vessel’s first 20-day mission, August 25, 2014. The privately-funded humanitarian project initiated by Malta-based Christopher and Regina Catrambone, seeks to mitigate the loss of human lives by migrants attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea into Europe. The Catrambones said they felt compelled to act following an appeal by Pope Francis after several hundred African migrants drowned off the Italian island of Lampedusa in October 2013.
