Five Afghan citizens were found dead in the basement level of a building in Istanbul’s Zeytinburnu district, Doğan news agency has reported.

The five men were reportedly poisoned by natural gas that leaked from the heating system.

It has been reported that they came to Turkey after escaping civil war in Afganistan and rented the apartment’s basement floor almost 10 days ago.

One of the Afghan men was a student in İzmir, the reports said. The first names of the men were Nakibullah, Muhibullah, İneyatullah, Hüdaybirdi  and Şuraşuhap, while their surnames have not been released.

The bodies of the men were sent to the forensic institute for autopsies.
