The bodies of thirteen migrants, including eight children, were discovered off the Greek island of Samos Thursday after their boat capsized, the Greek coastguard said.

 

A search was underway for around 20 people listed as missing after the latest tragedy involving migrant boats crossing the Aegean Sea from Turkey to Greece.

 

There were “five boys and three girls among the victims, while 10 people were recovered unharmed, but in shock,” a coastguard spokeswoman told AFP.

 

Initially the coastguard said at least 12 bodies had been found.
