4 migrants dead, 20 missing after Black Sea shipwreck”

The boat sank off the northwestern province of Kocaeli shortly after calling for help, the coast guard said in a statement.

At least four migrants are known to have died and a further 20 are missing after a boat went down off the Turkish Black Sea coast, Anadolu agency said on Friday. Their nationalities or where they were heading to was unknown.

The fishing vessels sank just before dawn off the coast of Kefken, about 200 km (125 miles) east of Istanbul, the coast guard said.

The coast guard plane, a helicopter, three vessels as well as five commercial ships joined the search and rescue effort for about 13 or 15 migrants who are unaccounted for, the coast guard said.

Turkey agreed with the European Union to help curb a flood of illegal migrants - many of them passing through Turkey or its waters - on the way to Europe.

The Black Sea has become the new route for refugees trying to reach European countries as the Aegean Sea route has become hard for them to cross after Turkey and the European Union inked a deal last March on stemming the flow of migrants.

Ambulances and medical teams were sent to the port of Kefken and were waiting for boats carrying the rescued migrants.
