More migrants drown as boats capsize off Greek coast

At least 34 people, nearly half of them women, babies and children, have drowned after their overloaded boat capsized in the eastern Aegean.

Greek authorities say over 100 people were packed into a rubber dinghy, and they managed to save 68. Another 29 managed to swim to safety on nearby Farmakonisi.

In a separate incident four children are missing after another vessel capsized near Samos.
