70 Migrants Rescued on Greek-Turkish Border

evrosGreek authorities rescued 70 migrants trapped on a berm at the Greek-Turkish border. According to the authorities, after the migrants crossed the rivers that divide the two countries, they were trapped in the Greek fields that had been flooded due to the heavy rainfall.
The migrants were found early on Friday morning, March 27, however the nationalities still remain unknown. The group included several women and children.
When a member of the group called Greek emergency services, border police rushed to the spot and used inflatable dinghies to reach the berm and rescue them. Greek authorities believe they had been abandoned by the smuggler who helped them cross the border.
After the successful rescue mission, the 70 illegal migrants were transferred to a nearby Greek village.
Every year, tens of thousands of refugees, including many from war-torn Syria and Libya, enter Europe illegally, after paying high prices to organized smuggling gangs to ferry them across the Mediterranean from northern Africa or Turkey to Italy and Greece.
