Migrant crisis: Bodies wash up on Lesbos as winds rage

The death toll off the Greek Island of Lesbos is likely to rise in the coming days unless urgent action is taken, according to an official leading rescue efforts.

The warning comes after the Greek coastguard said the bodies of another thirteen people, six of them children, had been recovered.

More than 430 people drowned trying to cross from Turkey to Greece in October.
