ISTANBUL (AA) - Police held at least 18 irregular migrants in the northwestern Silivri district of Istanbul, sources said Saturday.

Security teams held the migrants who were on a bus headed to Edirne province, which borders Greece.

The migrants were transferred to the provincial repatriation center.

Turkey has been a key transit point for asylum seekers who want to cross into Europe to start new lives, especially those fleeing war and persecution.

It hosts nearly 4 million refugees, including more than 3.6 million Syrians, the most of any country in the world.
