At least 14 migrants have died and 27 others have been rescued after a Greece-bound boat capsized off Turkey’s Aegean coast. Seven of which were reported to be children.

Twenty-seven other migrants, including a pregnant woman, were rescued by the Turkish coast guard after the capsizing of the wooden boat. The migrants who survived the capsizing were taken to hospital and reported to be in good condition.

The boat reportedly capsized because of bad weather conditions and heavy storms.
