Another 13 refugees were drawn early this morning -7 of them small children- in their effort to leave Turkey and reach Europe through Greece. The Greek Coast Guard managed to save another 15 refugees from the same wreck, east of Farmakonisi, in the Dodecanese islands of east-south Aegean.

Three of the survivors were in a critical condition and were transported by helicopters in order to be hospitalized in Kos hospital.

Among the 7 dead children was also a baby.
