Four adult illegal migrants from Afghanistan, their three underage children and a 34-year-old migrant smuggler, a foreign national himself, were arrested along the Evros River on the Greek frontier with Turkey, it was announced on Friday.
The arrests were made as soon as the smuggler’s inflatable dinghy with the illegal migrants reached the Greek side of Evros River. The man intended to return to the Turkish side of the river to pick up other seven illegal migrants and transport them to Greece.
