Migrant boat bound for Italy runs ashore on Greek island during storm

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Athens (dpa) - A boat carrying 29 migrants washed ashore on the western Greek island of Kefalonia in stormy weather overnight, forcing its occupants to a halt as they tried to reach Italy.

All on board were safely taken to shelter, a Greek coastguard official in the island town of Lixouri told dpa on Saturday.

"Everyone is well. They were lucky. In our area, winds were raging," he said, adding that 10 of the passengers were children.

The boat is thought to have set off from the coast of Turkey or Egypt, he said.

Nearly every week, migrant boats are intercepted in the waters off western Greece.
