‘Come to Europe and live like a king’: Revealed, the Facebook ‘travel agencies’ luring migrant families to their deaths

Pictures of pristine yachts sailing into the sunset, calm seas and smiling children fill the Facebook pages of ‘travel agencies’ offering boat trips to Greece.

At first glance they appear to be run by companies touting for business online, offering tourists ‘reasonably priced’ days out.

But in reality, these ‘travel agents’ are callous people smugglers luring refugee families to their deaths with the false promise of quick and easy journeys to Europe.

One of these unscrupulous traffickers told our undercover reporter, posing as an Iraqi mother-of-two desperate to reach Greece, that despite the recent news reports of migrants drowning, she and her children would be safe on his boat.
