  • [01] Twenty-four undocumented migrants rescued at new incident off Samos

    ANA/MPA---Greek Coast Guard vessel on Tuesday morning rescued 24 undocumented migrants in Samos Strait in the Turkish waters.

    The 22 men and two women were probably on board a dinghy that sank. A Turkish vessel is expected to collect the migrants.

    Meanwhile, the search in the sea area north of Samos to locate missing undocumented migrants who were on board the yacht that sank on Monday off the coasts of Samos continues.

    The body count of undocumented migrants includes 4 children, 12 women and 6 men, authorities said late on Monday. Of the 22 dead, 18 were found in the yacht among them a mother and her baby.

    The migrants were from Somalia and Eritrea, and reached a total of 65, according to the 39 migrants that survived the capsizing of the overloaded vessel.

    According to preliminary indications, the 12-metre boat started listing and took in water before capsizing. A search-and-rescue operation involved a Coast Guard vessel, one vessel from the EU's border patrol Frontex and a ship sailing in the area. The yacht was towed to Malagari port, Samos, soon after 1:00 p.m. and lifted onto dry land.
