Nine migrants dead after boat sinks off southern Turkey
At least nine migrants died when a speed boat carrying them sank off Turkey’s southern Antalya province early Sunday. Five people were rescued, while one is still missing, Yeni Şafak reported.
Turkey has been the main route for refugees trying to cross into Europe, especially since the beginning of the civil war in Syria.
There has been a 60 percent increase in migrant flow since 2016. The number was 31,000 in 2016.
