Greece's coast guard said that the bodies of 14 people have been recovered from the sea off a Greek island in the eastern Aegean following the sinking of a suspected migrant smuggling boat today (Mar. 17).

A massive search and rescue operation was underway to locate four others believed missing.

Initially, the bodies of four children, one man, and one woman were recovered off the island of Agathonisi, south of the island of Samos, the coast guard said.

Eight more bodies were recovered shortly after near Agathonisi. A coast guard spokeswoman said it was not immediately known whether they were adults or minors.

Three people, two women, and a man managed to reach the coast and alert authorities.
