The travellers told us that that they had been on a boat with 43 people close to one of the Greek islands the previous night, when they were attacked by three people on another boat. The three attackersstole their petrol and threw it in the water, shouted at the travellers that they should “go back to Turkey” and attempted to make a hole in the boat of the travellers. As water was entering their boat, the travellers called the Turkish coastguard who came and rescued them and brought them to a police station. The travellers were already back in Turkey when they called us.
