Up to four miss­ing, feared drowned off Lesvos

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Around 15 un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grants were res­cued and at least four more were re­ported miss­ing and feared drowned after their dinghy cap­sized off the coast of Plo­mari, on the is­land of Lesvos in the east­ern Aegean, on Satur­day. Ini­tial re­ports did not point to the num­ber of peo­ple aboard the boat, but sug­gested that most of them were Syr­ian na­tion­als, in­clud­ing a 14-year-old girl. Among the mi­grants res­cued and taken to a lo­cal health fa­cil­ity for ob­ser­va­tion was a 36-year-old man from Uzbek­istan, who was sub­se­quently de­tained over charges of hu­man trafficking.
