Greek coastguard 'threw migrants overboard to their deaths, dumped others in the sea on punctured boats and caused the deaths of dozens of people in the Mediterranean'

More than 40 people traversing the Mediterranean on small boats are said to have died due to the Greek coastguard's activities, which included forcing punctured vessels to go back out to sea. Nine of those people are believed to have died after they were deliberately pushed into the water by coastguard officers, according to eyewitnesses from NGOs, local media and the Turkish coastguard, which often receive migrants turned away by Greece. It comes just days after hundreds of demonstrators rallied in Athens on Friday to mark the one-year anniversary of a shipwreck that killed hundreds more migrants off Greece, demanding answers about the causes of the disaster and the fate of relatives. Up to 700 migrants from Pakistan, Syria and Egypt were crammed into fishing trawler 'Adriana' bound for Italy from Libya that capsized off southwestern Greece on June 14 last year, even though the Greek coast guard had been monitoring it for hours.
