Luxembourg declared itself ready to accept six migrants rescued from the Mediterranean at the end of December.
Alongside eight other EU member-states, Luxembourg responded to the call for help and said it would accept six of those rescued.
On Thursday, those six refugees, having been granted international protection status, arrived at Luxembourg Airport in Findel. The refugees originate from Eritrea, Somalia, and Sudan.
