SOHR: Death toll rises to 102 in Lebanon migrant boat tragedy

 

A total of 102 bodies have so far been found after a boat carrying illegal migrants capsized off the Syrian shore, while 40 others were still missing, a war monitor reported on Sunday.

The Syrian authorities have rescued twenty people, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The boat, carrying up to 150 immigrants, set off from Lebanon on Tuesday and headed toward Europe. It sank near the shore of the Syrian coastal city of Tartous on Thursday, according to Syrian official statements.
