Bodies of ten refugees have been recovered from the shores of Fourni, a Greek archipelago in the north Aegean, over the past ten days.
Four bodies, possibly of refugees, washed were located in the maritime area around the island of Fourni near Ikaria at midday on Monday, raising the total bodies recovered in the past ten days to 10.
The bodies of one girl, two women and one man which were recovered on Monday had been exposed to the elements and will be transferred to the Forensic Service of Piraeus.
Many bodies have been washing up on the island shores since last week, indicating that they belong to refugees who possibly drowned in their attempt to cross over from Turkey.
On Sunday, the 20th of December, the body of a 16-year-old girl washed up on the northern shores of Fourni, with further bodies being located the following Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday.
