Greek coast guard pursues migrant sailboat and arrests the captain

 Greek coast guard
A sailboat with 14 migrants onboard was located east of the town of Kalathos, Rhodes and pursued by the Greek coast guard.
The illegal vessel was intercepted after it refused to comply with the coast guard’s warnings, then sped off, performing dangerous maneuvers.
The boat was eventually halted and the illegal migrants were transferred to the port of Rhodes, while the captain, a 31-year-old man who was identified by the passengers, was arrested.
