The bodies of two sans papiers migrants were washed ashore on Wednesday on the banks of the Evros river, northeastern Greece, on the Greek-Turkish borders. 
The first body was identified to be that of an 18 year-old Pakistani man and the other possibly of Asian nationality.
According to initial police estimations, the two young men drowned while attempting to cross the river in order to enter into Greece from Turkey.
Another sans papiers migrant’s body was discovered on Tuesday in a farming area near Orestiada, close to Evros river.
