  • [01] 92 illegal migrants rescued in SW Aegean

    AMNA / Ninety-two illegal immigrants packed onto a decrepit commercial fishing vessel were rescued by a US-flagged freighter on Friday off the southwestern Aegean island of Kythira, following a cell phone call to the European emergency number “112” requesting urgent assistance.

    The would-be migrants, all identified as Egyptian males, were transported by the freighter to the southwestern Greek port city of Kalamata, where they were temporarily housed in a harbor warehouse.

    A massive search by coast guard vessels, helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft and six freighteró commenced after the cell phone call, ostensibly made by a passenger onboard the vessel as it sailed through rough seas in the region.AMNA
