A group of 41 undocumented migrants were rescued on Thursday off Pylos in the southwest Peloponnese, the Greek Coast Guard has said.

A distress call by one of the passengers to the European 112 hotline prompted a search-and-rescue operation early Thursday.

Officials said all 41 were transferred to the port of Pylos.
