9 men's bodies found on Turkey-Iran border
9 men's bodies were found on the Iranian border, in the vicinity of Başkale, district of Van, an eastern province of Turkey near the border with Iran.
Many health and gendarme teams were dispatched to the region after the citizens reported that they found bodies on the border of Van-Iran.
As a result of the investigation, the teams found that the bodies, which emerged as snow began to melt, belonged to irregular migrants who froze and died as they passed the border during the winter months.
The bodies reportedly were lost integrity due to attacks of wild animals.
After the examinations at the scene, the bodies were sent to Van Forensic Medicine Institute.
