Three people were drowned and it is proven that at least 12 are missing in a shipwreck of immigrants on the island of Mykonos, the Greek coast guard told this sixth fair (26).
The bodies of two women and a man were found during a search that began at dawn on the sixth fair, after a ship sailed off the Aegean Sea, near Mykonos, and told the coast guard.
Two men, one Syrian and one Palestinian, were rescued and, according to their accounts, a total of 17 people were on board the ship, according to a coast guard officer.
Four coast guard ships and three helicopters are backed up in a search and rescue mission, accompanied by the official.
Greece has been one of the two main entry points to the European Union for refugees and migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Most of them cross in inflatable boats from Turkey to the distant Greek islands, a short, more dangerous journey, during which thousands of people die.
