Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The four bod­ies re­cov­ered off the coast of the east­ern Aegean is­land of Lesvos on Wed­nes­day were those of a Syr­ian fam­ily from Aleppo, author­i­ties said yes­ter­day. The mother, fa­ther and their chil­dren, aged 4 and 6, drowned when their in­flat­able dinghy cap­sized. Six peo­ple were res­cued by coast guard of­fi­cers. Ac­cord­ing to reports, the fam­ily was iden­ti­fied through doc­u­ments found float­ing in the sea in a plas­tic bag near the ves­sel.
