A Turkish coast guard boat, Çesme, Turkey
(photograph, May 2015)
The photo shows survivors from a boat capsized in the Aegean Sea being
brought ashore by the Turkish coast guard. Recently it has emerged that
funding from the EU-Turkey deal is being used to establish detention centres
to house those rescued at sea or those returned to Turkey under the agreement. A recent report by Amnesty International has alleged that refugees are being sent back to war zones by the Turkish authorities.
