Three migrants have died and at least ten are missing after a boat sank near the Greek island of Mykonos. The Greek coast guard has rescued two migrants so far and is continuing search operations.

The migrants had embarked on their journey from Turkey's Aegean coast on Thursday. The exact number of people on board the boat is still unclear as the rescued migrants provided conflicting information. The dangerous sea conditions around Mykonos, characterized by strong winds, pose a significant risk to small boats. Smugglers frequently attempt to bring people from Turkey to the European Union via Greece using small boats.
