The group of refugees, including six women and a baby, were gathered on the Greek island of Rhodes. They were gathered on a beach near the Antalya’s Kaş district and were waiting for men who were to transport them to Greece by boat. After hours passed and nobody showed up, the refugees finally asked for the help of gendarmerie officers in the early morning.
When the authorities found them, they were exhausted, hungry, and cold. According to official sources, the refugees will be transferred to the nearest refugee camp.
Authorities have launched an investigation on human trafficking networks that operate in the area, and organize the transport of immigrants to Europe via Turkey.
