34 refugees drown after boat sank off Greek island


These heartbreaking images show the terrifying moment an overcrowded dinghy packed with refugees deflated and left them swimming desperately to shore.

One picture shows a breathless fully clothed father carrying his two-month-old baby boy through the water in a rubber ring as their crammed dinghy collapsed 100m from the Greek holiday island of Lesbos.

It comes on the same day 34 refugees drowned off Farmakonisi, believed to be the largest recorded death toll from any single accident in Greek waters since the migrant crisis began.
