Two Illegal Immigrants Die While Crossing Evros River

According to Greek authorities, two illegal migrants have died while trying to cross Evros River on the northeastern border with Turkey.
In particular, one man drowned and the other probably died of  hypothermia just after reaching the Greek side of the river, according to a police announcement published on Thursday.
The bodies were found on Wednesday near the city of Alexandroupolis, about 350 kilometers east of Thessaloniki. Police authorities say that the one victim was Chinese and the other African or Asian.
Greece under debt burden is the main gateway to the European Union for illegal immigrants from Asia and Africa, with tens of thousands arriving every year, mostly through Turkey  borders.
