No country for migrant stowaways caught on ferry between Ukraine and Turkey

No country for migrant stowaways caught on ferry between Ukraine and TurkeyBy Julie Astrid Thomsen COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Twelve migrants, apparently from North Africa, have been sailing to and fro on a Danish passenger ferry between Istanbul and Odessa for the last seven weeks locked in four cabins, with no country willing to take them. According to the Danish DFDS ferry operator, Turkey and Ukraine both refuse to accept the men, who have been violent and threatening suicide. “There has been a tendency to violence and aggressions and they have threatened to jump overboard… so there is no alternative to locking them inside the cabins,” a DFDS spokesman told Reuters on Thursday.
