Migration and Struggle in Greece

Dead immigrants in the Ionian Sea

Posted by clandestina on 3 September 2011

At least four immigrants drowned in the Ionian Sea today, when an inflatable boat sailing about 80 nautical miles west of Kefalonia island, sunk on early Saturday morning.

Eleven immigrants survived. One of them, whose condition was critical, was picked up by a navy helicopter and the remaining ten were picked up by turkish ship «MEHMET DADAYLI 1». The same ship discovered the 4 corpses.

According to one of the survivors onboard the sunk boat there were 30 sans-papiers. If it is so, the number of dead might rise to 19.
