The death toll from the boat that capsized off the north coast of Lesvos on Wednesday carrying hundreds of refugees and migrants has risen to ten, authorities said, as the search operation continued on Thursday.

Coast Guard officials have so far rescued 242 people but the total number of those aboard the vessel is still unknown. So far, four children and three adults were found dead, while another girl died in hospital.

Another 15 children are hospitalised in the town of Mytilene and three more were transferred with a C130 to a hospital in Athens.
