Turkish coastguard seizes 63 refugees

The Turkish coastguard has seized 63 people, mostly Syrians, off the coast of the western Turkish town of Dikili. They were trying to make their way by boat to the Greek island of Lesbos.  The migrants waited at the port of Dikili for registration before being sent to repatriation centers. Turkey has agreed with the European Union to take back all people who cross into Greece illegally in exchange for financial aid, faster implementation of visa-free travel for Turks in the Schengen zone, and accelerated EU membership talks.
