A US warship has rescued 128 migrants from an inflatable raft that was threatening to capsize in rough seas in the Mediterranean after a request from Malta, officials said today. The USS San Antonio, which is equipped with an amphibious transport dock that can help in rescue operations, was scrambled yesterday after a Maltese military aircraft spotted the dinghy.
