Over 20 migrants held in northwestern Turkey


At least 26 undocumented migrants were held on Saturday in Turkey's northwestern province of Kirklareli, according to a security official, APA reports quoting AA.

 

Migrants from Afghanistan and Syria were arrested as they were illegally attempting to reach Europe from Turkey, said the official, who asked not to be named due to restriction on speaking to the media.

 

A suspect was also arrested for alleged human trafficking, the official added.

 

Turkey has been a main route for refugees trying to cross into Europe, since especially the beginning of the civil war in Syria.
