Migrants tragedy: 10 dead in Edirne crash

Ten people have died and 30 were injured when a vehicle carrying migrants crashed in Edirne, northwestern Turkey.

According to the first information received the vehicle has been reported losing control of the steering wheel and heading straight towards a wall.

In a written statement, however, the governorate said that the suspicious vehicle failed to stop when warned.

Edirne, bordering both Greece and Bulgaria, has seen an influx of migrants seeking to cross into the European Union.

Turkey has been a key transit point for irregular migrants aiming to cross to Europe to start new lives, especially those fleeing war and persecution.
