ATHENS: Greece’s coastguard on Sunday said four people had been confirmed drowned in the latest boat sinking in the Aegean Sea, while around 100 migrants had been rescued in other incidents. The coastguard said it had recovered the bodies of a man and a young boy of around 10, part of a group of over 30 people whose boat capsized as they tried to reach the island of Samos on Friday. “The vessel carrying them sank under unspecified circumstances,” a coastguard spokeswoman said. The Turkish coastguard found another two bodies, she added, while a further 20 people from the Samos group are still believed missing. Thirteen people were rescued, including a woman and a teenage boy, who was hospitalized.
