ISTANBUL - The bodies of eight migrants, most of them children, washed up on Turkey's Aegean coast on Tuesday after their boat apparently capsized as they tried to reach the Greek island of Lesbos, Turkey's Dogan news agency reported.

The Turkish coastguard discovered the bodies in the district of Ayvalik at around 5 a.m. (0300 GMT). They rescued eight other people after a search at sea, Dogan said.
