DAILYKENN.com -- An Afghan Muslim was shot dead while scuffling with border guards in Bulgaria. The deceased was apparently attempting to invade Bulgaria via Turkey.
Reports say police fired warning shots, one of which ricocheted, striking and killing the insurgent.
The Guardian reported the death, accompanied by a photo of pathetic-looking children.
From The Guardian:
An Afghan man was shot trying to cross into Bulgaria from Turkey late on Thursday and died on his way to hospital, the interior ministry has said.
“A big group of illegal migrants attempted to enter Bulgaria from Turkey. One man suffered a gunshot wound in the incident and died on the way to hospital,” an interior ministry spokeswoman told AFP.
The incident happened near the south-eastern Bulgarian town of Sredets on Thursday evening, she said, adding that the dead man was from Afghanistan.
Public BNR radio cited the interior ministry’s chief of staff, Georgy Kostov, as saying that the group of 50 people – all from Afghanistan – was intercepted by a patrol of two border guards and a police officer after crossing into Bulgarian territory.
“They put up resistance during the arrest. One of the officers fired warning shots and, in his words, one of the migrants was wounded by a ricochet and later died,” Kostov told the radio.
