Immigrants confuse Milas for Greece.
The ten Iraqi immigrants who tried to reach the shores of Greece on an inflatable boat provided by human traffickers ended up in Milas. The immigrants heading in the direction shown by the organisers had abandoned the boat, scared by the Greek Guard Coast 300 meters behind them. They started swimming towards Toprak Island hoping that they had reached Greece. Teams from the Milas District Jandarme responded, following the tip off of unusual activity on the island, and found the exhausted immigrants. The fugitives had thrown their passports into the sea frightened by the Greek Coast Guard teams. They were later taken by the Jandarme to the 75th Year Milas State Hospital for a health check up. The immigrants, stating that they had fled the country with the hope of finding a better future abroad, will be deported back to Iraq following routine procedures. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.:gathering
