The Independent reports that as the first wave of refugees is deported from Greece to Turkey, human rights advocates have raised concerns about the country's suitability as a destination for asylum-seekers. Turkey is home to over 2.5 million Syrian refugees, but its refugee camps can only house around 200,000. Images of the shelter provided to refugees upon their immediate return from Greece appear to show hundreds of people sleeping under one roof in cramped conditions. Other pictures taken across Turkey over the last three years show many refugees from the Syrian civil war living in derelict accomodation, or on the streets of major cities such as Istanbul and Ankara.
