  • [01] Latest shooting incident along Evros River involving migrant smugglers

    (ANA-MPA) -- Another shooting incident involving migrant traffickers opening fire from the Turkish side of the Evros River was reported just after midnight on Friday morning as Greek border guards attempted to intercept a group of illegal migrants and their guide.

    The incident occurred at the Himonio site -- Orestiada district -- along the river, which separates the land borders of Greece and Turkey in the Thrace province.

    Border guards came under fire as they detained 11 illegal migrants and a Turkish man identified as a migrant smuggler. Authorities believe an accomplice of the alleged smuggler fired with an assault rifle from the opposite river bank, taking advantage of the darkness and the thick riverside brush.

    A boat used to ferry the illegal from the Turkish side onto Greek territory was also confiscated.

    The incident marks the second time in roughly a week that migrant smugglers operating from Turkish territory have fired on patrols along the Greek side, with a Frontex unit comprised of German personnel fired on last time.
