A Turkish ferry carrying scores of migrants left Greece early Monday, launching a controversial EU expulsion deal criticised by rights groups, an AFP reporter said.

The small ferry, Lesvos, set sail from the Greek island of Lesbos, with the larger catamaran Nezli Jale scheduled to follow suit with hundreds more on board.
