In two separate incidents, totally 42 lives were lost in the sea , east of Kalolimnos (near Kalymnos) and Farmakonissi in the eastern Aegean. From the two boats that sank,  67 refugees were rescued.

Authorities kept searching for more refugees since nobody knew the exact number of the passengers of the boats.
