Thirty-seven migrants rescued off Gavdos

Greece’s Coast Guard said on Thursday it had rescued 37 migrants from a vessel off the southern coast of Crete. 

The migrants were found on Wednesday night 18 nautical miles southeast of the small island of Gavdos. They were all collected by a container ship sailing nearby before they were transported by the Coast Guard to the port of Paleochora, near Chania.

The rescuees will be identified before they are transferred to a migrant camp on the mainland.
