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.
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.
