First migrant drownings in Aegean since EU-Turkey deal

Turkish coast guards patrol the Aegean sea between the Turkish coast and the Greek island of Lesbos on April 4, 2016Four migrant women and a child drowned Saturday off the Greek island of Samos, the first deaths in the Aegean Sea since a controversial EU-Turkey deal to stem the flow of refugees took effect three weeks ago. It is understood to be the first time people have drowned trying to reach Europe via the Aegean Sea since a deal between Brussels and Ankara to curb the migrant influx went into effect on March 20. Under the terms of the EU-Turkey deal, all “irregular migrants” arriving on the Greek islands from Turkey face being sent back.
