Eleven more refugees, including two children and four babies, drowned on Sunday morning, when their plastic boat sank as it was approaching a rocky coast off Samos, in the southeastern Aegean.

Authorities said their boat was just six meters away from the coast when the accident happened. The victims were identified as five women, two children and four babies, while another 15 people were rescued by the coast guard.

Coast guard officials, divers, and volunteers are still in the area.
