Migrants Die Near Turkey

Many migrants died on their way to Turkey this weekend after their boat sunk. The number of total deaths in unclear, but seems to be between 43 and 51. Illegal immigration is apparently a large problem in Turkey, and officials so they are trying to crack down. A rescue search for the bodies is taking place, but officials say it seems unlikely that there will be any more survivers.

I found it interesting that, although they used the same sources, the Turckishpress said 51 died and Strib said 43. Perhaps the TP is more recently updated. Besides that, both of the articles were similar. They both relayed inverted pyramid style information about the event. At the end, they both included a little bit about the state of illegal immigration in Turkey.
