An Italian Frontex ship rescued 66 refugees and migrants stranded on the islet of Paspargos, near Chios on Friday morning, adding to the 200 people found earlier today during four separate search and rescue operations near Lesvos.

The boat with the refugees and migrants had entered Greek territorial waters when it was spotted by Frontex and all passengers were transferred to the port of Chios.
