Search at sea for migrant boat

The Greek coastguard is searching for a boat believed to be carrying 45 migrants and to have run into trouble south of the small Ionian island of Antipaxoi, off the western coast of mainland Greece.

Two coastguard boats, a helicopter and one more boat sailing in the area were searching for the vessel after one of those on board made a call requesting help, the coast guard said.

It was not immediately clear what problem the boat was experiencing or where those on board were from.
