20 Feb 2018

Kathimerini reports that ''a group of 17 Turkish citizens seeking asylum in Greece after crossing on a rubber dinghy to the eastern Aegean island of Oinousses includes six children and four women.

The seven men in the group told Greek authorities that they are civil servants and judicial officials seeking protection in Greece from a crackdown unleashed by the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in response to the botched coup of 2016''.
