The Nigerians were aboard a boat with 110 migrants. They were rescued by Aquarius, a ship being operated by MSF,  21 miles from the coast west of Tripoli. The ship will deliver the migrants, who included 18 women and one child,  to Italy.

According to Reuters, more than half the migrants on that boat were Nigerians, with the rest from other sub-Saharan African countries as well as two Palestinians.
