European Union warships begin military operation in Mediterranean.

Six European Union warships have started military operation, patrolling international waters in the Mediterranean Sea to catch human traffickers who bring refugees to Europe.

The mission off the coast of Libya includes an Italian aircraft carrier, a French frigate and one British, one Spanish and two German ships.

The warshipsm have already carried out several exercises, including a simulation of an attack carried out by traffickers, to which they responded by opening fire.

At least three other vessels supplied by the Belgian, British and Slovenian navies are expected to arrive in the area at the end of October to complete the force, which also include four aircraft and 1,318 personnel.
