Greece ‘to examine Turkish soldiers’ asylum requests’

Greece will examine the request for political asylum by eight Turkish soldiers who fled to Greece in a helicopter earlier on Saturday, two Greek government sources said.

Greece arrested the men after they landed in the northern Greek city of Alexandroupolis. They are due to appear before a Greek prosecutor on Sunday, one of the officials said.

The Black Hawk helicopter the soldiers fled in will be returned to Turkey immediately the sources said.
