Ten people were readmitted to Turkey on Friday after the rejection of their asylum requests according to EU-Turkey agreement.

Six of them were Pakistani nationals, one from Iraq, one from Iran, one from Algeria and one from Egypt. Nine of them were men and a woman. Frontex was responsible for the readmission procedure.

Another migrant from Egypt who was initially included in the readmission list is on a hunger strike in protest of the rejection of his asylum request claiming that he is persecuted by Egypt’s regime.
