Refugees who died in the train accident were commemorated: 14 refugees who lost their lives in the train accident in Macedonia are commemorated at the beginning of their graves
The graves of 14 refugees who lost their lives in a train accident last year in Köprülü, Macedonia, were commemorated at the beginning.
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Macedonian representative Muhammed Arif, activists from humanitarian aid organizations and citizens of Köprülü attended the commemoration ceremony.
Köfülü Mosque imam Seyfeddin Selimovski and citizens participating in the ceremony prayed for those who lost their lives.
Speaking at the ceremony, Selimovski said the asylum seekers who lost their lives were seeking peace, but their fate was written to die on this path.
Reminding that the refugees who lost their lives a year ago fled from the war, Muhammed Arif said, “There are many refugees who lost their lives like these 14 refugees while fleeing the war. There are also people who are still fleeing war. In the countries where asylum seekers are located, the necessary duties must be fulfilled to protect them. " used the expression.
Activist Lençe Zdravkin said the memorial service was organized to ensure that the asylum seekers who lost their lives were not forgotten.
In April last year, the express train running between Thessaloniki and Belgrade hit a group of refugees trying to go to European countries for a "better life" between Macedonia's capital Skopje and the cities of Köprülü, and 14 people died.
