Seven Migrants including three children and a baby loosed their lives near the Greek island of Lesbos after their boat collided with a Greek rescue vessel, the coastguard said, meanwhile thousands continue to arrive on the Greek mainland.

A wooden boat carrying dozens of migrants from Turkey to Europe sank Thursday near the island of Lesbos after colliding with a Greek coastguard vessel, afterward migrants and refugees carried by a dinghy on the island.

More than 400,000 refugees, mostly Syrians and Afghans, arrived in Greece since early January while dozens were drowned trying to make the crossing.

In total 710,000 have entered the EU through Greece and Italy during the same period, according to the European Agency Frontex border surveillance.

The migration issue has caused deep divisions within the European Union, which is trying to set the distribution of migrants among its member countries or limit the flow.
