A one-year-old baby and two children, six and seven, "are vomiting continuously and are at risk of hypothermia and dehydration", said Alessandro Metz of Mediterranea, which aims to protect migrant rights at sea.

The latest standoff involves 32 migrants who were rescued at sea on December 22 but have not yet been given permission to land anywhere.

Among those on board are three unaccompanied adolescents and four women from Nigeria, Libya and Ivory Coast.

One of the 32 migrants now onboard the Sea-Watch 3 jumped overboard and attempted to swim to Malta on Friday, Sea Watch, the German NGO that runs the vessel said.

The help party included fresh crew members and German members of parliament.

A migrant has been rescued after he jumped off a German aid group's vessel and tried to swim to Malta.

Another private aid vessel, with 17 rescued migrants aboard, also was sheltering off Malta.

Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio, who heads the 5-Star Movement, insisted Saturday that Malta let the migrants disembark so Italy can take in 10 mothers and their children.

They fell to around 23,000, it said.

This week nearly two dozen humanitarian groups, including Amnesty International and the United Nations' International Organisation for Migration, called on the European Union to offer a safe port to both vessels.

Migrants have frequently been left in limbo aboard ships that rescued them since Italy's populist anti-immigration government began turning them away last summer.

The European Union's border agency says the number of unauthorized border crossings into Europe has hit a five-year low, but that migrant entries into Spain via the Mediterranean continue to climb.

All of the figures are far down from their peak in 2015 when an estimated one million people crossed the Mediterranean to Europe, mostly from Turkey into Greece.
