Total of 19 dead recovered from Aegean Sea

Greek authorities confirm that the bodies of four more migrants, all men, have been recovered north of the island of Farmakonissi in the eastern Aegean Sea.

Four others were rescued and seven are missing.

This brings the total number of dead recovered Sunday in the Aegean Sea to 19, in three separate incidents.

The number of smuggling boats crossing over to Greece from the nearby Turkish coast fell Sunday as strong winds raked the eastern Aegean Sea, but some still attempted the dangerous crossing.
