Illegal Migration

Four migrants drown in Ionian

Coast Guard vessels on Sunday were scouring the sea around the Ionian island of Cephalonia after recovering the bodies of four drowned immigrants and rescuing another 11 who had fallen from a smuggling boat on Saturday. Following contradictory accounts from the rescued migrants -- who all claimed to be from Pakistan -- about the presence of other passengers on the inflatable dingy, Coast Guard officials continued their search of the area late Sunday.
