Fifteen migrants killed in southeastern Turkey bus crash
Fifteen illegal migrants were killed and more than 20 injured in a minibus crash in southeast Turkey on Thursday, Reuters reports.
The minibus carrying the migrants went off the road and rolled into a ditch in the province of Van. Footage from the scene showed the minibus in the ditch, with the casualties laid out on the side of a road.
More than a million migrants and refugees, many fleeing conflicts and poverty in the Middle East and Africa, have passed through Turkey in recent years on their way to the European Union.
