In eastern Turkey, a mini bus carrying migrants caught fire after it overturned. 12 people have died in the incident and 20 others have been injured. The official Anadolu news agency reported this news on Sunday. The vehicle fell into a ditch during a late night journey near Yumakali in Van province, bordering Iran.
Television broadcasts showed emergency aid workers treating the wounded on the road and pulling the injured out of the rubble. Most expatriates from Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan often cross the Iranian border and enter Turkey before leaving for the western cities of Istanbul and Ankara.
Migrants increased amid deteriorating conditions in Afghanistan
Metin Korabatir, president of the Ankara-based Center for Asylum and Migration Studies, said plans to withdraw US forces from Afghanistan have led to an increase in the number of migrants and young people trying to come through the mountainous route. In June 2020, more than 60 migrants were killed when a boat sank in Lake Van. Turkey has been caught in a big trouble due to the wrong decisions of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
