Six children and a woman trying to enter Turkey illegally from Iran via the Hangedik district in the eastern Van province are said to have died Wednesday night, according to a report by Doğan news agency.
Local gendarmerie officials rescued the remaining 27 people, eight of whom were taken to a hospital in Çaldıran to be treated for frostbite. Five migrants, whose conditions had worsened, were taken to a state hospital in Van.
The illegal migrants, who are said to be Afghan nationals, were observed by local border guards at 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday. Local officials said the recent days' hail storm in the region and the freezing temperatures at high altitudes were the causes of the tragedy.
