At least ten migrants drown off Turkey, several missing

At least ten migrants, including five children, drowned on Saturday when their boat sank in the Aegean Sea while trying to cross from Turkey to Greece, the Turkish coastguard said.
An unknown number of people were still missing after the latest in a long list of migrant boat sinkings in the Mediterranean.

So far, 43 passengers had been rescued, the private Dogan news agency reported.

“We are sad. At least 20 friends are still missing,” one weeping survivor told an AFP photographer at the scene.
