Turkish coast guard to continue saving lives in Aegean Sea.

Turkey rescues 44 asylum seekers.

Turkish coast guard units rescued 44 asylum seekers  who were left by the Greek coast guard to die in the Aegean Sea.

At least 44 asylum seekers were taken to the provincial migration office.

Turkey has been one of the main routes for asylum seekers wanting to reach Europe, especially since Syria’s civil war started in 2011.

Turkey hosts nearly four million Syrians, more than any other country in the world.
