Turkey nabs 350 migrants heading to Greece


ANKARA: The Turkish coastguard on Sunday stopped five boats carrying dozens of illegal migrants, mostly from Myanmar, who were trying to reach the Greek island of Lesbos, local media reported.

A coastguard vessel spotted the boats about four miles off the shore of Dikili town in Izmir province as they tried to reach Lesbos, the private Dogan news agency reported. The coastguard stopped the boats and took the migrants back to shore where they were handed over to the police. Most of them were from Myanmar.
