Seven drown after migrant boat overturns off Greek island

Two children, four women and a man drowned when a boat carrying them overturned off the Greek island of Lesbos on Tuesday. Another 57 people were rescued in the operation northeast of the port of Lesbos. No details were provided on the nationality of the victims. Greece has become one of the main gateways for refugees flowing into Europe in recent years.

why do they blame us when it's them who are ILLEGALY immigrating to Europe with unsafe means of transport. I belive there's somthing called a border checkpoint, but you'd probably need VALID PAPERS to pass through which all people should have.

its there own fault your job is to protect the lives of your citizens and bringing in poor and uneducated migrants leads to crime which hurts your own citizens

No, the term is invaders die attempting to breach a sovereign nations borders by subterfuge and under the cover of darkness.

Sometimes I think I've grown up. Then I'm reminded that there's an actual island called Lesbos, and realize that I definitely haven't.

Blame the countries whose shores they're leaving from for not doing more to eliminate traffickers. I don't understand why Europeans get a guilt trip about this?
