Migrants freeze to death after Greece pushback
TRT World says Turkish authorities have recovered 12 bodies believed to be those of asylum seekers who were pushed back by Greece.
The bodies were found near the Ipsala border crossing between Turkiye and Greece, Turkiye’s Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said on Wednesday.
They were found frozen to death “without shoes and stripped of their clothes,” by Greek border guards at their land border.
The 12 were among 22 asylum seekers who were pushed back into Turkiye by Greek border guards, Soylu said via Twitter.
