VAN – Anadolu Agency
Some 14 undocumented migrants have been detained in the eastern Turkish province of Van, a Turkish security source said on May 20, state-run Anadolu Agency reported.
Police halted a minibus carrying 14 undocumented migrants, including two children, in Van’s Muradiye district, said the source who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.
The driver of the minibus was detained, while the undocumented migrants were referred to the provincial migration authorities.
Turkey has been a major route for migrants trying to cross into Europe, especially since the start of the civil war in Syria.
