Turkish Coast Guards rescued 42 Syrians in the Aegean Sea, near the coast of the western Aydin province on Wednesday.

Forty-two Syrians in a boat that was about to sink were rescued, according to a Coast Guard official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to media.

Ten of them were children and 12 women, said the official.

Separately, a total of 150 undocumented migrants -- 42 in eastern Erzincan province, 12 in western Edirne province, 44 in western Canakkale province and 52 in western Izmir province -- were held on Wednesday, according to gendarmerie and coastal guard sources.

Two suspects were arrested for human smuggling.
