IZMIR, Turkey (AA) - At least 92 undocumented migrants have been rounded up in western Izmir city, according to the Coast Guard Command on Tuesday.

In a statement, the coast guard authority said the migrants, including children were stopped off Bademli neighborhood in Dikili district when they were making an attempt to illegally cross into Greece in an inflatable boat.

There were 23 Syrians, 11 Angolans, five Gabonese, five Togolese, two Gambians and a South African in the boat, the statement said.

Separately, coast guards stopped early Tuesday another boat off Dikili district, aboard which were 25 Afghans, 11 Syrians, eight Iranians and a Congolese.
