, Index number: EUR 44/2521/2015

Around 150 Syrian refugees are currently being held in a camp in Osmaniye province, close to the Syrian border, and are at risk of being returned to Syria by the Turkish authorities. A smaller group of Iraqi refugees were released from the camp on condition that they return to Iraq within a month. The refugees were travelling to Greece in a boat that sunk on 15 September leaving at least 22 dead, including children.
