A video showing Turkish coast guards using sticks against a boat full of migrants as they sail to Greece in the Aegean Sea, BBC reports.

The incident is said to have happened in Turkish waters as the migrants were on their way to the island of Lesbos.

The migrants accused coast guards of attacking them, but the coast guards say they were trying to stop the boat without harming the occupants.

The EU and Turkey are discussing new moves to curb the flow of refugees.
