Migrants rescued from sandbank in Evros River

EMAK rescue crews on Monday picked up a group of 25 undocumented migrants trapped on a sandbar in the Evros River, northern Greece.

Authorities said the migrants probably got stuck as they tried to cross the river due to the unusually high level of the water following heavy rainfalls over the past few days.

The migrants were all men, but there was no information on their nationalities.
