At least 33 people have drowned after two boats carrying refuges and migrants, including many children, capsized in the Aegean Sea.

Anadolu and Dogan news agencies reported that 22 people died close to the Greek island of Lesvos.

As a Turkish official told Reuters, the people on the boats were trying to reach a Greek island.

Dogan said 11 people died in a separate incident further south, near Dikili in Izmir province, Turkey.

News of the deaths comes as German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Turkey to discuss the refugee crisis in order to find ways of reducing the number of refugees and migrants arriving into Europe.
