Immigrats use Turkey as a transit point to enter Europe. Thus many immigrants have entered other European countries through Turkey. Among them are a significant number of Bangladeshis who try to enter Europe through Turkey.

These migrant cross the sea at the risk of their lives. Again many try to enter Europe by minibus and truck.

A large part of the immigrant candidates are citizens of Bangladesh, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The news of their deaths often comes in the media as they travel on risky roads.
