A migrant boat presumed to be heading for Italy has capsized in western Greece, killing 12 onboard, authorities said today.
Fifteen others were rescued off the coast of Lefkada, an island in the Ionian Sea, and were taken to a hospital on the island for observation.
Coastguards are searching for more possible victims and survivors, the Merchant Marine Ministry said.
Ministry officials said the migrants were using a plastic boat which was about 25ft (8 metres) in length. It is not yet known where the boat began its journey.
This latest boat tragedy follows the deaths of at least 27 people in the Mediterranean sea last month - a week after more than 300 Africans lost their lives when their boat capsized near their destination of Lampedusa, Italy.
Riot police stormed the defunct Greek state television headquarters in Athens, ending a five-month sit-in from protesters against the broadcaster's closure.
The government took the channel, ERT, off air in June as part of public sector cuts demanded by foreign lenders.
About 50 sacked journalists refused to leave the building and kept ERT alive over the Internet for five months.
They were finally removed from the building in the pre-dawn raid on Thursday.
Four people were briefly detained, as police fired a few rounds of teargas to disperse the stand-off, officials said.
The government has since launched a new television channel called Public TV.
Greek far-right group Golden Dawn has blamed the country's government after two of its members were shot dead, saying it had asked for police protection at its offices after receiving threats.
"(Prime Minister Antonis) Samaras's anti-Greek government is to blame for the crime, which allowed out-of-control terrorists to murder young kids in cold blood," the party said in a statement.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, although a police official told Reuters the force suspected unnamed anti-establishment groups.
Greek far-right group Golden Dawn said on its website that two of its members, aged 20 and 23 years old, were killed in today's shooting in Athens.
However, police have not yet verified the identities of the victims.
The Greek authorities said the gunmen who shot dead two members of the far-right Golden Dawn group today will be "dealt with unsparingly".
Government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou told reporters:
– Simos Kedikoglou
The murderers - whoever they are - will be dealt with unsparingly by our democracy. Let everyone know this.

Bulgarian authorities say a DNA test has confirmed that a Bulgarian Roma woman is the mother of the Greek mystery girl.
The girl has been in the care of a Greek charity after she was seized from the home of another Roma family.
A Bulgarian Roma woman, Sasha Ruseva, has denied taking money for giving up her baby to another Roma family years ago, as she faces preliminary charges of selling the child known as Maria to a Greek couple.
Ms Ruseva, who has eight chiildren, said she gave birth to a girl while working as an olive picker in Greece “several years ago”, but said she was forced to leave the child behind because she could not afford to take her home.
She told Bulgarian TV: “I intended to go back and take my child home, but meanwhile I gave birth to two more kids so I was not able to go back.”
Bulgarian Roma woman Sasha Ruseva, who faces preliminary charges of selling the Greek child Maria, has been pictured with her fair-skinned, blonde-haired son Atanas.
Maria was taken away from a Greek couple after authorities suspected that she was unrelated, due to her blonde hair and fair skin which did not match the couple's dark hair and tanned skin. DNA tests have since confirmed that the child is unrelated to them.
Ms Ruseva has a second fair-skinned child, who has striking red locks. Ms Ruseva said she wanted Maria back if DNA tests prove she is her daughter.
