Refugees and migrants disembark from a dinghy on the Greek island of Lesbos, on October 28, 2015, after crossing the Aegean sea from Turkey. At least five migrants including three children, died on October 28, 2015 after four boats sank between Turkey and Greece, as rescue workers searched the sea for dozens more, the Greek coastguard said. The new accidents brought to 34 the number of migrants found dead in Greek waters this month, according to an AFP tally based on data from Greek port police. Since the start of the year, 560,000 migrants and refugees have arrived in Greece by sea, out of over 700,000 who have reached Europe via the Mediterranean, according to the International Office for Migration (IOM).
