Greece: Greece accuses Turkey of occupying small piece of Greek land
Greece has lodged a protest over Turkish troops’ occupation of a small patch of swampland along the land border between the two NATO member nations.
Nevertheless, dozens of Turkish soldiers and police remain planted there, defying demands that they retreat. The confrontation is the latest in escalating tension between the two age-old rivals.
For more than 100 miles, the Evros river rips down through Greece’s northeast frontiers, separating the country from Turkey.
