Six children, including a baby, died when a dinghy carrying Afghan migrants capsized off Turkey, reports say.
The Turkish coastguard rescued eight others from the Aegean Sea near the western city of Izmir.
The latest tragedy came a day after the body of a young girl was found washed up on a nearby beach.
More than 3,500 people have died or have reported missing this year while trying to cross the Mediterranean into Europe.
One in four of those who died was a child, according to the UN refugee agency.
