ANKARA, Turkey – The latest on the continuing flow of refugees and other migrants into Europe. All times local:
Turkey's state-run news agency says four Iraqi migrants — two of them children — have drowned after a boat taking them to Greece sank off the Turkish coast.
Anadolu Agency says the boat was taking eight Iraqi migrants to the Greek island of Kos. It sank on Friday shortly after leaving the Turkish Aegean resort of Bodrum.
Turkish coast guards rescued the four other migrants.
Anadolu said authorities detained a Turkish man suspected of organizing the journey.
Some 770,000 refugees and other migrants from the Middle East and Africa crossed to the Aegean islands in flimsy boats provided by smuggling rings this year. Hundreds have died during the crossings.
