Two migrants drown, 30 missing after boats capsize off Greek island

ATHENS - Two migrants drowned and about 30 were missing after their boats capsized off the eastern Greek island of Samos early on Monday in seas where hundreds have died attempting the crossing this year alone, the Greek coast guard said.

 

Thousands of migrants from Africa and the Middle East pack into often unsafe boats to get into the European Union via Greece, Italy, Malta and other coastal states.

 

The numbers have increased since "Arab Spring" uprisings triggered unrest across North Africa and civil war in Syria. (Reuters)
