Turkish media says several hundred migrants walking towards Greek border


Istanbul (Reuters) – A group of migrants is walking in northwest Turkey toward its border with Greece, the Demiroren news agency reported on Friday after a senior Turkish official said Turkey will no longer stop Syrian refugees from reaching Europe.

Demiroren said there were around 300 migrants, including women and children, in the group which began heading towards the border in Turkey’s Edirne province around midnight. Syrians, Iranians and Iraqis were among those in the group, it said.

Reuters could not independently confirm who the people were nor where they were headed.
