Migrant crisis: Turkey police seize fake life jackets
Police in Turkey say they have confiscated more than 1,000 fake life jackets made for migrants wanting to cross the Aegean Sea to Greece.

On Tuesday, the bodies of 34 migrants were found along Turkey’s coast. Many were wearing life jackets.
Several children were among the dead.
