At least four people have drowned after a boat illegally carrying migrants to the Greek islands sank in the Aegean Sea on Monday, Turkish officials said.

Nine people were also rescued, governor of the southwestern province of Mugla, Amir Cicek, told.

“The Coast Guard Command is continuing its search and rescue efforts from the sea and the air,” Cicek said. “It is not yet known how many people were in the boat.”

The migrant boat was heading to Greece’s Kos Island when it capsized off the Datca Gulf, in Mugla province in southwestern Turkey, added the governor.
