Turkish security forces arrested 27 illegal migrants inside a train in the northwestern city of Aderna.
The police was informed about illegal immigrants on board a train travelling from Istanbul to Aderna, Anadolu Agency (AA) quoted security sources as saying.
The sources said that the police arrested 27 illegal migrants while searching the train, adding that the migrants were intending to infiltrate Greece.
The migrants were transferred to the Immigration Directorate in Aderna to take legal action against them, the sources said.
Turkey's borders with Bulgaria and Greece and the Turkish coasts are witnessing an increase in the number of illegal migrants traveling via land or sea in an attempt to reach a European country, but Turkish police use various ways to prevent their infiltration across the country's borders. (QNA)
