A woman and two children lost their lives in another shipwreck close to the Greek island Lesbos. At least 12 missing.
At around 06:00 in the morning, a plastic boat with 60 people on board capsized when it fell on the rocks because of the stormy winds blowing in the area at Kara Tepe, a few kilometers north of the island. Forty-five people were able to go ashore. Most of them were Afghan refugees.
A helicopter and an offshore boat are researching the area. The weather conditions are particularly difficult with very strong winds. Authorities are conducting research on shore in case that some refugees were able to swim there.
