Migrant death toll off Turkey reaches 21

Turkey's coast guard has raised the number of migrants who drowned in the first of two boat disasters off Aegean coast to 14, bringing the overall death toll in both incidents to 21.

A coast guard statement said that seven other migrants were either rescued or found alive onshore in the resort of Ayvalik.

Earlier, the private Dogan news agency said seven other bodies, including women and children, were discovered on the coast of Dikili, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of Ayvalik.

Namik Kemal Nazli, the local administrator for Ayvalik, told state-run Anadolu Agency that rescuers were still searching for more migrants and that the death toll could rise even more, according to a news agency. - Idrak
