Shocking new footage emerged on Monday of Hellenic coastguards shooting at and beating a dingy full of migrants off the coast of Bodrum.
The armed coastguards can be seen hitting the migrants with sticks and brushing past the boat causing it to collide with the much larger coast guard boat. The migrants can be heard screaming.
A migrant child was allegedly killed on Monday when their boat... Еще capsized off the coast of Lesbos in a separate incident. Another Syrian refugee was reportedly killed by a rubber bullet whilst trying to cross the Greek border, which the Greek government has denied.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that his country's borders with Europe were open to migrants on Saturday. The statement came after at least 33 Turkish soldiers were killed in an airstrike in Syria's Idlib province last week. President Erdogan has accused the EU of failing to keep its financial promises to Turkey in return for keeping Turkey's borders with the EU closed to refugees.
