At least 22 migrants, including 13 children, drowned overnight Thursday to Friday off the Greek islands of Kalymnos and Rhodes as they made a desperate bid to reach Europe, while another 144 people were rescued, Greek port authorities said.
Off Kalymnos, authorities recovered the bodies of 19 migrants on Friday morning, including those of six women and 10 children. Another boat sank off Rhodes further south, where at least one woman, a child and baby drowned.
