Shocking footage has been released that seems to show Greek coast guards trying to sink a migrant life boat.

Their actions were to stop the migrants entering Greece, and forcing the Turkish to pick them up instead.

The footage was released by diplomats, and was from November 12th.

It clearly shows a man in uniform trying to jab a pole at the raft, puncturing it.

There were 58 Syrian people on the raft, with screams audible as it begins to sink and the Greek vessel then sails away.

The Syrians were then taken to the port of Didim in Turkey, where most refugees start their attempts to get into Europe due to the proximity to Greece.
