Reports just in claim two Greek soldiers on patrol on the Greek-Turkish border accidentally strayed into Turkey due to bad weather and have been taken to the city of Edirne by Turkish authorities.

The Greek army said two of its men drifted into Turkish territory on Thursday because of bad weather, and that Greek and Turkish authorities were in contact with each other and were undertaking procedures for the two to be returned to Greece.

Most of the Greek-Turkish border is marked by a river, and a fence runs along much of the land section. Some parts, however, aren't clearly marked, and the area where the soldiers strayed was reportedly in woodland.
