Ves­sel with 110 runs into trou­ble off Methoni coast

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A Coast Guard and a Fron­tex ves­sel early on Satur­day res­cued 110 un­doc­u­mented mi­grants after the smug­gling boat in which they were trav­el­ing ran into prob­lems off the coast of Methoni, in the south­west­ern Pelo­pon­nese. The res­cue ves­sels were dis­patched after one of the mi­grants is­sued a dis­tress sig­nal as the boat had suf­fered engine fail­ure. The route to Italy south of the Pelo­pon­nese has gained pop­u­lar­ity with smug­glers since last year.
