Greece: Frontex stops immigrants’ boat

Posted by clandestina on 6 July 2011

Two Turkish smugglers and a group of 21 sans-papiers immigrants were detained on Crete on Tuesday after a vessel belonging to Frontex, intercepted their boat off the island of Kythira.

The migrants, of Afghani origin, are being held in the premises of the old City Hall of the port of Hania.

The boat the smugglers used had set sail from Turkey and had been destined for Italy.
