Illegal migrant boat capsizes in Aegean Sea: 1 dead, 1 missing

A small boat carrying illegal migrants to Greece capsized off the Turkish coast Tuesday, officials said. The Turkish Coast Guard rescued eight of the migrants, but one person drowned and one other was missing.

The migrants, rom Somalia and Mauritania, boarded the boat at the Aegean coastal resort of Kusadasi and were bound for the Greek island of Samos.

Each year, thousands of migrants from the Middle East, Asia and Africa pass through Turkey on their way to Greece and other western European countries.

Hundreds have drowned off the Turkish coast while attempting to reach Greece or Italy or have been killed when they stepped on land mines along the Turkish-Greek border, reports the AP.
