Two suspected people-smugglers netted by Greek coast guard

Coast guard officials said on Tuesday that they had arrested two suspected members of a people-smuggling ring – two Albanians, aged 47 and 16 – after a boat that had set sail from Turkey dropped off 33 undocumented immigrants on Myconos.

The 47-year-old, who had been navigating the boat, was arrested by coast guard officials off the Aegean island, while the 16-year-old was caught in Isthmia, near Corinth.
