ATHENS, Greece - Greece's coast guard says it has recovered 14 bodies from inside a capsized migrant smuggling boat, bringing the total number of dead in the incident to 18.

The yacht and a dinghy crammed with dozens of immigrants trying to enter Greece illegally capsized before dawn Monday off the coast of the island of Samos.

It is the third such fatal sinking in this country so far this year. It was not immediately clear why the boats overturned.
