Six dead, 10 rescued as boat carrying Syrian asylum seekers sinks off Turkey’s Aegean coast

By clandestina


At least six refugees drowned on Thursday as a boat carrying Syrian asylum seekers sank off the shore of Turkey’s north-western province of Çanakkale.

10 refugees have so far been rescued. The refugees were trying to reach Greece’s Lesbos Island through illegal means. The boat sailed from the Ayvacık district of the Çanakkale Province in the Marmara region, but it soon sank off the shores of Turkey’s Gülpınar village for unknown reasons.

The search team first rescued 10 migrants, two of whom were children and four were women. The team later reached the bodies of six Syrian asylum seekers.

The team is continuing its rescue and search operations in the region

19 feared dead after people smuggler’s boat capsizes off Greek islands

By clandestina


Up to 19 people are feared to have drowned trying to reach Greece from Turkey, in the deadliest Mediterranean shipwreck since May.

A people smuggler’s boat carrying up to 40 passengers capsized on Tuesday morning between the small Greek islands of Agathonisi and Farmakonisi, 10 miles from the Turkish coast. One passenger has been confirmed dead and 21 have been rescued, leaving as many as 18 still missing. “We don’t know their nationalities,” said Stella Nanou, a UN refugee agency spokeswoman.

The shipwreck is the first major tragedy in the Mediterranean for over a month, due in part to an increase in European search-and-rescue operations in the sea’s central region. But rescue missions remain limited in the eastern Mediterranean, where this year’s migration levels have eclipsed even the record numbers of arrivals to Italy, raising the likelihood of boat disasters.

In the first half of 2015, more than 68,000 migrants – mainly Syrian, Afghan and Iraqi refugees – have risked the short trip from Turkey to the Greek islands, double the total number of arrivals in 201 4.

The influx has overwhelmed Greek institutions, which are already unable to cope with the country’s catastrophic financial crisis.

Dinsdag, 30 juni, heeft een groep van ruim 90 asielzoekers van Wij Zijn Hier geprobeerd zich in te schrijven voor de Bed Bad Brood (BBB) voorziening die de gemeente Amsterdam aan de vluchtelingen heeft beloofd. Het was een actie waarbij de vluchtelingen van Wij Zijn Hier laten zien dat zij wel willen meewerken, maar dat de gemeente in gebreke blijft, zelfs met de karige opvang die ze biedt.

Ongeveer 40 vluchtelingen werden afgewezen omdat er geen plaats in de nachtopvang was. Mensen werden weggestuurd en voelden zich ontredderd. Hun advocaat had geadviseerd zich in te schrijven bij de BBB, maar deze groep is daar dus geen stap mee opgeschoten.

Volgens Het Parool heeft een medewerker van de gemeente Amsterdam gezegd dat de vluchtelingen in andere gemeenten terecht zouden kunnen. Echter volgens Wij Zijn HIer zijn geen van de grote gemeenten geneigd om Amsterdamse asielzoekers op te vangen.

De hele gang van zaken bij de GGD waar de registratie plaats vond, was uiterst chaotisch: de vluchtelingen moesten buiten het GGD gebouw op straat wachten tot ze aan de beurt waren om zich in te schrijven, sommigen hebben 2,5 uur in de zon gestaan, terwijl de wachtkamer binnen leeg was. Er was veel gedrang omdat …read more
