    Italy is one of the countries that refused to let in a rescue ship carrying more than 200 refugees.

    The Lifeline eventually docked in Malta after being stranded at sea for six days.

    And now it's the subject of an investigation.

    Police are questioning whether it was assisting people smugglers.

    Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from Valleta, Malta.
