A rescue unit approaches the Icelandic Coast Guard vessel Tyr deployed by Frontex during a drill off the Sicilian coast in the Mediterranean Sea, Sunday, April 26, 2015. EU leaders on Thursday, April 23, 2015 pledged to double the size of Frontex's Triton mission and triple its budget but refused to allow it to do active search and rescue work. In the most recent incident documented by Frontex, the Icelandic Coast Guard vessel Tyr with 342 rescued migrants aboard was called by an Italian tugboat to help rescue another 250 migrants from another boat. Just after they were saved, a speedboat with armed men firing shots into the air turned up and took away the empty migrant vessel, Frontex said in a statement. (AP Photo/Francesco Malavolta)
