nafplio-yacht-showMore than 600,000 migrants and refugees have been transported from Turkey to the East Aegean Greek island since the beginning of this year. Smugglers often cram these persons into small boats for the perilous sea journey.
On Monday the Hellenic Coast Guard reportedly uncovered a different means of transportation. Greek media report that more than 300 migrants and refugees were found aboard a thirty metre yacht that was detected off the northern coast of the island of Lesvos.
The yacht’s owner reportedly charged 3,000 euros per person for transporting them from the Turkish shores to the Greek island, “To Vima” newspaper reports.
The migrants and refugees were later transferred to Lesvos.
