Migrant crisis: Boys drown in crossing to Greece

The immense risks taken by people to find a new life in Europe have been underlined by the discovery of the bodies of two young brothers on a beach in Turkey.

They were part of a group trying to cross from Turkey's Bodrum peninsula for the Greek island of Kos.

The BBC's Fergal Keane reports from Bodrum.
