A ship carrying 193 migrants and refugees from Turkey has ran ashore at the island of Kea (Tzia) early Monday morning.

The ship sailed from the Turkish port of Canakkale and was apparently headed to Italy when bad sea conditions forced it to run ashore on the Greek island.

Authorities say that three traffickers are among the passengers.
