Dead Refugee Lands on Lesbos

Authorities say the body of a young man has been found on a beach on the Greek island of Lesbos.

Greece’s Coast Guard says the man is believed to be in his early 20s but has not been identified yet.

A Coast Guard spokeswoman said there was no reported incident at sea Nov. 7 and it wasn’t clear when the man drowned.

Well over half a million migrants have crossed the Aegean Sea to the Greek islands from Turkey so far this year — a record number of arrivals — and the journey has proved fatal for hundreds. The vast majority don’t want to stay, and head north through the Balkans to other, more prosperous European Union countries.
