  • [01] Second boat with refugees and migrants sinks during crossing to Lesvos on Monday

    ANA-MPA - Greek authorities on Monday rescued 52 Syrian refugees in the sea between the Greek island of Lesvos and the Turkish shore, after a second boat carrying migrants sank in the region within an hour of an earlier incident near Turkey. The second dinghy carried 52 refugees and had also set sail from the shores of Behramkale (ancient Assos) on the north coast of the Adramyttian Gulf. Authorities have no information regarding missing persons on the boat and all those rescued are reported in good health. They were taken to Molyvos harbour on Lesvos. The incident occurred roughly an hour after a boat carrying approximately 45 migrants and refugees capsized in Turkish waters around noon. They were rescued by the Turkish coast guard and taken to Turkey.
