The six women and 21 men, who are all of Somali origin, have been taken in by Lisbon council and will be given professional training. The migrants arrived in Portugal Thursday night, nearly six weeks after the humanitarian vessel docked in Malta.

Portugal has already taken in 50 migrants from the Aquarius.
