Migrants continue to flock to Greece-Turkey border
Turkish security forces have detained more than 2,000 irregular migrants planning to cross to neighboring Greece in the city in the past 5 days, security sources said.
Police and gendarmerie forces tightened security measures near the border to prevent the influx of migrants.
Thousands of irregular migrants had previously flocked to Edirne in 2015 after claims that Germany would accept migrants and that border crossings would be open.
Turkey has been the main route for irregular migrants trying to cross into Europe, especially since 2011 when the Syrian civil war began.
