18 die in Greek migrant boat sinking

Authorities in Greece have raised the death toll from a migrant boat sinking to 18, after recovering seven more bodies off the island of Samos in the eastern Aegean Sea. The Coast Guard said Thursday that nine children were among the dead — four girls and five boys — while eight adult men and one woman also died. Vessels from the European border agency Frontex were assisting the Greek Coast Guard in the search for others possibly missing, after 10 people were rescued.
