Migrants intercepted off Cape Tenaro taken to Kalamata

Greek coast guard officers intercepted a group of 170 undocumented migrants on a vessel about 60 nautical miles off Cape Tenaro, in the western Peloponnese, last Friday.

The migrants were subsequently put on an Italian-flagged tug boat which happened to be in the area and was expected to reach the port of Kalamata over the weekend.

The nationalities of the migrants were not made known.
