One dies, three missing after immigrants' boat sinks off Symi

One migrant died when a boat sank near the island of Symi in the southeastern Aegean Sea, Greek authorities said on Thursday, adding that three people were still missing.

Greek and Turkish coast guards managed to save the lives of 15 people who were aboard the vessel.

There was no information about their nationalities late Thursday.

Twelve immigrants from Afghanistan and Syria – including children – died in January after a controversial sinking.
