Six children were among 11 migrants who drowned off the Greek island of Lesbos, according to coastguards.

Four of the victims were babies.

Ten of the dead were found in the cabin of the boat, which overturned as it made the hazardous crossing from the nearby Turkish coast, authorities said.

The final victim, a young girl, was washed up on the island, where dozens of refugees have died trying to reach Europe in recent days
