About 500 People Still Missing After Fishing Boat Capsizes Off Greek Coast

About 500 people are still unaccounted for after a fishing boat capsized off the coast of Greece.

It’s emerged none of the migrants rescued were women or children.

It’s feared they were all on a lower deck of the overcrowded vessel when it went down.

Ireland South MEP Grace O’Sullivan says a close-by boat should have done something to help:

“They should have been able to acknowledge straightaway as seafarers that that ship was absolutely full with people to the gunnels. It was way over capacity. They should have gone in for assistance. They should have known clearly that the people on board that vessel were not seafarers – that they were migrants trying to seek passage into the EU”.
