Tragic Discovery on a Small Greek Island: 14 Migrants Rescued, One Body Found After Dinghy Capsized

ATHENS, Greece—Greece’s coast guard found a group of 14 migrants and the body of a man on the shore of a tiny island in the eastern Aegean Sea on Tuesday morning, authorities said.

The five men, six women, and three children were found on the remote island of Farmakonisi, along with the body of one man. It was not immediately clear how he died.

The group had apparently arrived on the island from the Turkish coast in a dinghy that sank, the coast guard said. There were no reports of anyone missing. The migrants and the deceased man were taken to the nearby island of Leros, the coast guard added.
