    ISTANBUL - Since the March 18th signing of the EU-Turkey accord, 462 migrants have been sent back to Turkey from Greece. In the same period, 508 Syrians hosted in Turkish refugee camps have been relocated to Europe. Welcoming them on a voluntary basis were Germany, Finland, Italy, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Sweden and Lithuania, Turkish government sources told ANSA.

    The average number of daily arrivals from Turkey to the Greek islands has gone down from a peak of 7,000 in October to about 30 last week, the same sources said.

    On some days, such as April 10 and 25, and May 1 and 24, there weren't any registered migrant arrivals from Turkey.
