Yet another boat transporting migrants and refugees from Turkey to Greece capsized, leading to 18 casualties on Friday evening.
Among the people who drowned, ten were children, local media outlets report. The boat had departed from the Turkish shores and was heading to the Greek island of Kalymnos. Kalymnos has had 8,948 migrant and refugee arrivals this year, the United Nations Refugee Agency reports.
