Spain said Tuesday August 20th it will send a military ship to the Italian island of Lampedusa to fetch migrants on board a charity boat that has been stuck at sea for days as Rome refuses it access, AFP has reported.

"The Audaz, which will leave this afternoon at 5 pm (1500 GMT), will sail for three days to Lampedusa where it will take charge of the people taken in by the Open Arms," the government said in a statement.
