Fifteen refugees die in the Aegean waters
Fifteen refugees lost their lives when their boats capsided in the waters of the Aegean Sea.
In the first tragic incident, six children and one woman were recovered dead, when the wooden boat, with about 48 people aboard, crashed at midnight on the rocks on the eastern coasts of Farmakonissi and sank.
The Greek Coast Guard managed to rescue a girl, while the remaining 40 people had made it to get out safe by their own means.
Soon afterwards, as it became known, eight bodies were recovered from the sea region off Kalolimnos.
Vessels of the Coast Guard continue to search the area, in an effort to track down any more missing people and 26 people so far have been rescued.
According to survivors, approximately 70-100 people were on board.
