boatAt least 3 people killed and over 300 people rescued after a boat carrying around 700 people capsized off the Greek island of Crete on Friday, say reports.

The coastguard rushed two patrol boats while a plane and a helicopter also joined the rescue operation.

According to the reports, roughly 25 meter vessel, which resembled a large fishing boat, had been carrying an undetermined number of people when it was located Friday half-sunk about 75 nautical miles south of Crete in international waters.

It was not immediately clear where the boat’s passengers were from, or where the vessel had set off from or was heading to.
