The bodies of two immigrants were discovered yesterday in Peplo area – one on the bank of the Evros river and the other in a rural area of Thymaria village near the town of Alexandroupolis.
According to the announcement of the General Police Department of Eastern Macedonia – Thrace, the two young men, of afro-asian origin and chinese origin, tried to cross the Evros River in order to enter Greece from Turkey.

The first one was probably swept away by the rushing waters and drown – the second died due to freezing weather.
