12 immigrants dead after boat capsizes in western Greece

Authorities in Greece say 12 immigrants have been found dead and eight were rescued after a boat capsized in western Greece. A search continued Friday for more possible victims and survivors.

The Merchant Marine Ministry said the incident occurred early Friday, off the coast of Lefkada, an island in the Ionian Sea.

Greece is the European Union's busiest transit point for illegal immigration.
