While on the way to #Sicily, MSF emergency coordinator Will Turner distributes food rations to the people on the upper deck of the Phoenix, the rescue boat run by #MSF and @migrantoffshoreaidstation (MOAS). At about 9am on the 14th of May the #Phoenix team received a call from the #MRCC in Rome, informing them of a traditional wooden #fishing #boat estimated to be carrying 300 people in distress. By 11am the #rescue had began and it didn't finish until nearly 6pm by which point 561 people had been rescued from the 18 metre boat. Of those people rescued, 154 men were immediately transferred onto an oil platform supply #ship, with the remaining 407 taken on board the Phoenix. The 407 on board the MY Phoenix included: 60 children (15 of which are under five), 136 women, 211 men. They are from seven different countries: 374 people from #Eritrea, 20 people from #Syria, eight people from #Ethiopia, two people from #Chad, one person from #Morocco, one person from #Sudan and one person from #Yemen.

RG @andrewquilty: Dr. Sebastiano Girmenia, a veteran surgeon who has worked in crisis zone trauma centres for more than twenty years presents two bullets extracted from separate patients at the Médicines Sans Frontières (@doctorswithoutborders) Kunduz Trauma Centre in northern Afghanistan. Girmenia explained some of the ballistic qualities and effects of the two bullets; both fired from Kalashnikovs and both Full Metal Jackets (FMJ) (ie. lead centred with a harder steel or alloy casing). The bullet on the left was removed from the soft tissue of its victim's pelvis. The wound was small and clean and the slug remained in tact. The bullet on the right, dinted at the base, had entered a patient's thigh midway through a longitudinal "wobble", rotating and obliterating the patient's femur. Girmenia went on to explain the bizarre logic of the law that came as a result of The Hague Convention of the late 19th Century regarding such ammunition; that non-FMJ bullets are illegal in warfare because they inflict significantly more destructive wounds than FMJs that cause what is considered reasonable injury. The reason being that non-FMJs become disfigured upon impact, creating massive internal trauma to their victims. Conversely, DMJ bullets are largely illegal for hunting purposes where the aim is presumably to kill rather than just to wound. If I'm off on any of this, perhaps @cjchivers can correct me???Andrew Quilty / Oculi. 19.5.2015. #Kunduz #Afghanistan #MSF #kalashnikov #AK-47

RG @andrewquilty: At @doctorswithoutborders' (MSF) trauma centre in Kunduz City, the victim of a stray mortar shell explosion waits to have shrapnel wounds to his face cleaned and dressed. The Province of Kunduz, in the country's north, comprises a disparate ethic makeup and was once considered a success story of post-2001 Afghanistan. Now, however, it is playing host to the Taliban's most recent major offensive. It is only thanks to an extra 2,000 Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers called in from adjacent provinces and Kabul that Kunduz City was itself spared. At one point shops, businesses & government offices were shuttered as fighting came within a kilometre of the city centre. Andrew Quilty / Oculi. 18.5.2015. #Kunduz #Afghanistan #MSF #ANA

"As a dad, I was touched by these tiny kids. They don't understand what's happened but maybe it's better that way" Joffrey Mornier, MSF Communication officer on the Bourbon Argos plays with 3 of the 17 Eritrean children rescued on 13 May from an old wooden fishing boat containing 477 passengers at about 30 nautical miles north of the Libyan coast.

A second major #earthquake measuring 7.3 struck #Nepal today, just over two weeks after the previous earthquake hit. All of our teams in Nepal have been successfully contacted and all are accounted for. They are now regrouping and gathering information to determine what new needs there are. This picture was taken a few days ago, showing our team inside our #inflatable hospital in #Arughat performing #surgery. © Benoit Finck/MSF

This Syrian baby girl and her mother were rescued by MSF and MOAS on 8 May. During this second rescue 219 people were brought on board MY Phoenix from a small boat trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea. The group included 55 women (3 pregnant) and 33 children including 9 children under 5 years and 2 babies. Most people were from Somalia and South Sudan. Follow @MSF_sea on Twitter for daily updates.
