Feared Dead From Suspected Migrant Boat Sinking Off A Greek Island


Vistas said that while all efforts were now focused on the search and rescue operation, "it is clear that the solution is in (providing) measures for the protection of people" and in providing safe procedures for refugees and migrants while also cracking down on smuggling rings.

ATHENS-A boat that sank off a Greek island while smuggling migrants or refugees left at least 14 people dead Saturday, while a search and rescue operation was ongoing to locate more people believed missing.

Sunday is the second anniversary of a European Union-Turkey deal blocking mass migration into Europe.

Hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants flowed into Greece and further west in 2015 from Turkey, making the short but precarious crossing. The drop was especially observed on the eastern Mediterranean migratory route which connects Turkey to Greece, and the central Mediterranean route connecting Libya to Italy.

The EU-Turkey deal has been criticised by humanitarian groups deterring people from coming who under global law must be granted asylum, such as those fleeing war-torn countries like Syria.
