The Turkish coast guard has rescued 57 people who were stranded on a tiny island in the Aegean Sea after attempting to reach Greece.
The state-run Anadolu news agency says helicopters evacuated 12 people including three sick children from the island near the Turkish coastal town of Dikili in Izmir province. Small fishing boats helped rescue the others, as coast guard vessels were unable to navigate the rocky area.
There was no mention of fatalities or the nation identities of the rescued, according to a news agency. - Idrak
