Duvar EnglishNumber of migrants rescued from boat wreck off Greek island up to 96
A Kurdish woman from Turkey's southeast Mardin published a video on social media, asking for help locating her husband and son who have been missing since a boat crash off the coast of a small Greek island near Rhodes on Aug. 25.
Berivan Cansun, her husband Yunus and her four-year-old son Hasan were all on the boat when it sank. Berivan Cansun was among the 96 people rescued from the crash, and has not since heard from her husband or her son.
"I don't know if they're alive or dead. I need big governments to help me," Cansun said.

The woman said the Greek government has told her that her son and husband were in hospital but has not shown her any proof.
"They'll tell me [my son and husband] are in the hospitals. The Greek government needs to show me my husband and my son," the woman said in the video where she's seen speaking Kurdish.
