As work continues to identify victims, it is still unclear why a boat carrying migrants sank at the mouth of Istanbul's Bosphorus strait, killing at least 24 people, with many others still missing.
Women and children were among the over 40 migrants packed onto the boat. Only 6 have been pulled out alive.
Local fishermen helped in rescue efforts which coastguard vessels and a helicopter have been continuing in the Black Sea, just north of the Bosphorus.
