Toll from three migrant boat sinkings off Greece rises to 44: official



Greek and Turkish coastguards have recovered the bodies of 44 migrants — including 20 children — whose boats ran into trouble en route to Greece on Friday, officials said.
 
Two accidents in the early hours off the Greek Aegean islands of Farmakonisi and Kalolimnos left 41 people dead, the Greek coastguard said.
 
Turkey's Dogan news agency meanwhile reported that the Turkish coastguard had found the bodies of three children after their boat sank off the beach resort of Didim.
