6 Syrians Dead in Waters Off Northern Cyprus

A boat carrying Syrians sank off the coast of the Karpas Peninsula  in Northern Cyprus  earlier this week.  Six people are reported dead, including two children.  Two survivors were reportedly arrested on human smuggling charges.  The boat is reported to have left the Syrian port city of Latakia which is approximately 100 km from the closest parts of Northern Cyprus.
