Boat Sinks Off Turkey, Killing 24 Migrants

TIME

At least 24 people have died after a boat carrying migrants believed to be from Afghanistan and Syria sank Monday in the Bosphorus Strait.

The Turkish coast guard said 24 bodies have been recovered and seven people rescued from where the Strait meets the Black Sea. Rescue crews are searching for other passengers by air and sea.

This year hundreds of thousands of migrants have tried to reach the European Union, making dangerous journeys across sea and land. The BBC reports that the refugees may have been trying to reach Romania, a member state of the European Union.
