Twenty nine migrants rescued in northern Aegean


Greece’s coast guard on Thursday found and rescued 29 migrants from a boat drifting in the sea area between the northern Aegean Sea island of Samothrace and the town of Alexandroupoli.

Authorities were alerted after one of the migrants made a phone call to the European single emergency number.

All rescuees appeared well in their health and were transferred to the port of Alexandroupolis.
