Footage released by the Greek coast guard shows over a dozen migrants aboard an inflatable boat accompanied by a Turkish patrol boat off the coast of Lesbos on the edge of Greece’s territorial waters on Monday.
A child has died and another was hospitalised after a boat with 48 people aboard capsized near the island’s coast on Monday morning. A member of the Greek coast guard staff suggested the passengers overturned the boat themselves as they saw the rescue ship approaching, according to local media.
