At least 19 drown in refugee boat sinking off north Cyprus

At least 19 refugees drowned and up to 30 were missing today after their boat sank in the Mediterranean off the north of Cyprus. Local security forces said the boat was carrying 150 people when it went down off the coast of the breakaway Turkish Cypriot-controlled portion of the island, which is only recognised by Ankara.  

Over 100 people were rescued in a joint operation by Turkish Cypriot and Turkish coastguards after the boat sank off the village of Gialousa  on the panhandle Karpas peninsula. Turkish-Cypriot security forces (GKK) said in a statement that search efforts were under way to recover the missing with commercial vessels also taking part.
