Five children among a dozen migrants to drown off Turkish coast

Among the latest tragic deaths of people trying to reach Europe are some one dozen Syrians who drowned after they set out in two boats from Bodrum, a resort in southeastern Turkey. Others are still missing.

Migrants attempt the short crossing from Bodrum to the Greek island of Kos in small dingies. A senior naval official said almost 100 people had been rescued in this area by Turkish vessels overnight.

The confirmed dead included five children and one woman.

Many of the migrants do not have life vests.
