At least 12 people drowned in the Aegean Sea when two boats filled with refugees sank en route to Greece on Wednesday.
The refugees were on their way to Greece from the Turkish tourist resort town of Bodrum.
According to Turkish officials, 11 dead were recovered near the first boat; however, search-and-rescue teams were able to save three people and were continuing to look for two missing people.
Also, Turkish authorities recovered the body of a child near the second boat. They were able to rescue 13 people near the dinghy boat found offshore of Bodrum's Akyarlar coast.
