Turkey bus crash kills 12 people
Among the dead were 11 migrants and a person who helped organise their illegal transport, the authorities were quoted as saying on Sunday.
The injured were taken to hospital and the owner of the bus was detained, they added.
Situated near Turkey’s eastern border with Iran, the city of Van is used as a crossing point for migrants on their long journey to reach Europe, with many coming from Afghanistan.
In July 2020, a boat carrying up to 60 migrants sank on Lake Van.
