• NO VACANCY — Border Patrol Kills Refugee Trying To Enter EU

    A Bulgarian border guard shot and killed an Afghan man after he illegally entered the European Union from Turkey.

    The man was part of a group of around 50 migrants trying to sneak into Bulgaria, which is a part of the E.U. The remaining refugees were detained after the incident.

    Officials say the man died when a bullet meant to be a warning ricocheted after the migrants resisted arrest, according to BBC.

    The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said the incident is the first of its kind since the start of the migrant crisis, and the agency is “deeply shocked.” It further called for an independent investigation of the death from the Bulgarian authorities.

    Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov left the E.U. migration meeting when he got the news of the incident. The meeting, ironically, focused around Turkey and the two million refugees that are currently staying in the country. The E.U. ministers agreed to give Turkey €3 billion to aid the refugees and take measures to keep them within the borders. Turkey has also received promises of easier visa restrictions to the E.U.

    Bulgaria added a new fence along the border to keep people out earlier this year. Hungary have taken similar measures against Croatia and will close down the border Friday night.
