ANKARA, Sept 6 (Reuters) - More than half of the 60 migrants who died after their boat sank off Turkey's western coast on Thursday were children, a district official told Reuters.
Tahsin Kurtbeyoglu, governor of the coastal district of Menderes in Turkey's western Izmir province, said 31 of the dead were children, including three babies. He said most of the migrants were Palestinians. (Reporting by Jonathon Burch; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
