More migrant tragedy strikes Greece.

Via Ekathimerini…

A man’s body has been recovered off Lesvos by the Greek coast guard during a search and rescue operation that was launched after a boat carrying refugees to the island capsized.

Authorities said that eight people were rescued but that a total of 15 were on board the vessel. The search for the remaining six refugees continued on Monday morning.

Meanwhile, a passenger ferry carrying refugees from Aegean islands to Piraeus was expected to dock at the port on Monday morning.

Some 2,500 refugees, mostly from Syria, are expected to disembark from the Eleftherios Venizelos at Piraeus. The ship has been conducting the route from the eastern Aegean to Piraeus over the past few days to help ease overcrowding on several islands.

On Sunday, the vessel ferried 2,466 refugees from Kos, Kalymnos, Leros and Samos to Piraeus.
