Thessaloniki (Greece): Police in Greece announced Thursday that they had saved 64 asylum seekers. This included 10 children who were exiled by smugglers from an island on a river near Greece’s border with Turkey.
The police said that the migrants were found on Wednesday night by the Greek authorities. However, the group initially refused permission to join rescue teams to transport them to the Greek side Evros River.
On Thursday, a second attempt was made. Police stated that they evacuated the 46 men, eight women, and 10 kids who were Syrian citizens seeking asylum in European Union. They claimed that they were abandoned on the island in the northeastern Greek city of Didimotecho after being taken to the Turkish side by smugglers.
For people fleeing poverty or war in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, land borders are crucial crossing points. Saturday night saw a group crossing the Evros River to Greece by boat, when a woman was shot. It is unknown who fired the fatal shot.
The Greek police claimed that they were bombarded by Turkey and responded to the attack with aerial fire.
