Afghans on the march to Europe as Taliban advance
The Times says Turkey has arrested several hundred illegal migrants heading from Afghanistan towards Europe in the past few days as a fresh exodus of people fleeing the advancing Taliban gathers pace.
More than 200 Afghans were detained in a single incident as they attempted to board a boat off the Aegean coast, the Turkish coastguard said, and 200 more were arrested in Istanbul. Up to 1,000 are said to be crossing into Van, the eastern Turkish province that borders Iran, every day, with many more trying to find legal ways to leave Afghanistan if they can afford it.
