Greece indicts 5 people for maritime trafficking of 96 migrants to Italy | app

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Five people were arrested on a Greek island on Tuesday and charged with trying to smuggle nearly 100 migrants to Europe on a dangerous vessel last week, using what appears to be a new shipping route direct from Lebanon in crisis to Italy.

It was the second such incident in about a month involving a boat leaving Lebanon. The most common sea route for asylum seekers from the Middle East and Africa seeking a better life in Europe is from Turkey to Greece or Italy. But it has become less used in a context of heightened vigilance by Greek border agencies and the European Union.
