On Saturday the Norwegian ship Siem Pilot docked with 105 migrants on board. 14 of  those who were rescued in the Mediterranean were children.
The migrants were first rescued by a civilian merchant ship before they were transferred to Siem Pilot and transported to Pozzallo in Sicily in Italy, according to NCIS.
 63 men, 28 women and 14 children under 16 years were rescued in the operation.
Siem Pilot joined  the Triton operation last summer, and is patrolling the waters between Italy and Libya. The crew has since June brought over 12,000 migrants safely ashore in Italy.
