GREECE-MIGRANTS RESCUED
Greek coast guards rescue another 24 migrants, a day after boat accident that cost 22 lives

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, May 6, 2014 3:39 AM EDT
ATHENS, Greece


Greek authorities say 24 immigrants have been rescued after they were found floundering off an Aegean Sea island where at least 22 people died in a separate incident a day earlier.

A coastguard statement says a Greek coastguard patrol boat entered Turkish waters early Tuesday to pick up the migrants. It waited until a Turkish patrol boat arrived to escort them to mainland Turkey.

The rescue took place in a strait between the Turkish coast and the Greek eastern island of Samos that is favored by people-smugglers.

Greek authorities are still searching by sea and air for up to seven people still believed missing after a yacht carrying up to 65 migrants capsized off Samos before dawn Monday, with the loss of at least 22 lives. There were 36 survivors.
