Eleven out of around 30 undocumented migrants stranded on an island in the Turkish Aegean have been rescued, security sources said on Friday.

The migrants trapped on Bogaz Island -- including children -- were saved by Turkish Coast Guard helicopters, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

Bogaz -- an uninhabited island off Cesme, in the Aegean province of Izmir -- is near the Greek island of Chios. The migrants are thought to have gotten stranded while trying to illegally cross to the Greek island.
