Two Iraqi children, aged six and two, have been found dead in the Aegean Sea off the Turkish resort of Cesme while trying to reach EU member Greece, the Dogan news agency reported Wednesday.

 

The corpses of the two children were found floating in the sea by local fishermen who then handed them over to the local Izmir region coastguard, it added.

 

Turkish media reports said the two had been among 200 migrants seeking to reach Greece by crossing the Aegean, all of whom had otherwise been rescued.
