Corpses of three migrants drowned in Greece to repatriate to Kurdistan

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Lutka Foundation for Refugees and Displaced Affairs said on Sunday that the bodies of three migrants will be repatriated to the Kurdistan Region in the upcoming week from Greece.

Three migrant bodies who were found near the Greece coastlines are scheduled to be repatriated at Erbil international airport on June 30, Lutka said in a statement.

“The bodies included two children aged between 6 to 9 and a woman as well,” it said.

“They were drowned after a refugee boat had sunk in an incident on December 12, 2021, the corpses were discovered five months after through three different phases” it added.

In December, Lutka said 32 people from the Kurdistan Region who had taken the sea route to reach Europe had died or gone missing near Greek coasts in the month.

Greece is one of the main routes into the European Union for migrants and refugees from Africa, the Middle East and beyond, though the flow has tapered off since 2015-2016, when more than a million people traversed the country to other EU states.
