ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek authorities say two migrants have been killed and 30 others rescued in Greece after a dinghy crashed into rocks in high winds on the island of Lesbos. Many of those rescued were found in a remote area on land near the accident site, facing the nearby coast of Turkey, apparently trying to make their way to the nearest town. A search was also launched at sea but it remained unclear whether others were missing. Lesbos is a transit point for illegal migration into the European Union despite rigorous patrolling by the Greek coast guard and the EU border protection agency Frontex.
