Turkey: 11 irregular migrants held in NW province
Gendarmerie forces round up Palestinian, Syrian nationals in Kirklareli

KIRKLARELI, Turkey (AA) - At least 11 irregular migrants were held in northwestern Turkey, near the Bulgarian border, security sources said on Sunday.

Acting on a tip-off, gendarmerie forces held irregular migrants – nationals of Palestine and Syria – in the Demircikoy district of Kirklareli province.

After routine procedures, they were transferred to a repatriation center.

Turkey has been a key transit point for irregular migrants 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 for any country in the world.
