Coast guard teams pulled out six bodies from the Aegean waters, over the most recent migrant boat disaster, off the resort town of Çeşme in İzmir, on early Dec. 8. Some eight migrants were rescued throughout the night, struggling to survive in the water, in their life jackets.
This marked the second disaster in the last week, as the lifeless body of five-year-old Sajida Ali, whose corpse was missed after a separate boat disaster, while three corpses were found earlier in the same region, linked to the same incident.
Lifeless body of Ali has washed ashore the Pırlanta Beach in Çeşme, on Dec 7. This followed the imaged of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi, whose lifeless body washing ashore the Turkish resort town of Bodrum has triggered outrage across the world, a few months ago.
The six bodies, which have been found in Çeşme, will be brought to the İzmir Forensic, while the other migrants, rescued by coast guard teams will be appealed for testimony.
The corpse of Sajida Ali will be given to her family, local reports said.
