Bulgarian police officers rescued from drowning in Maritsa River 111 illegal migrants, of whom 61 children, 26 women and 24 men. None of the migrants presented a valid ID. The people are probably of Iraqi or Syrian origin. They were attempting to reach the river shore from a small island near the village of Generalevo, Svilengrad municipality. According to preliminary data, the foreign nationals were transported by boats last night, most-probably by Turkish traffickers and were later left on the Bulgarian island.
