A storm has been blowing for the past week in the Aegean Sea – causing heart-breaking deaths of migrants on the Greek island of Lesbos.

Yesterday rescuers found the bodies of two children washed up on Lesbos after the migrant boat they were on smashed into rocks.

Coastguards say the two young refugees, aged seven and two, were on an inflatable dinghy carrying 63 migrants to the Greek island from Turkey.

A woman has also been confirmed dead and seven are missing after the vessel crashed into coastal rocks amid rough seas.
