Desperate families arrive in Greece in search of people missing after boat capsize

In Greece desperate families have been arriving, looking for loved ones who boarded the doomed trawler which set sail from eastern Libya last week.

They are relaying any news they can to anxious relatives thousands of miles away in Syria, Egypt and Pakistan.

There are still conflicting reports of what happened in the hours before the boat sank, with one relative alleging that a Greek coastguard vessel attached a line to it before the tragedy unfolded.
