Turkish man arrested

A Turkish national was arrested and charged on Wednesday for illegal entry after crossing into Greek territory.

Greek police and army offices arrested the man in the northeastern border village of Kastanies after he alleged to have strayed across the border.

The man is an employee at the municipality of Edirne who was carrying out construction work with a digger near the Turkish customs office in the area.

According to information, Greek officers signaled to the municipal worker he was approaching the border, but he crossed it by about 10 meters.

He will be led before the prosecutor today.
