The Turkish graveyard of anonymous migrants

This year alone, more than 360 migrants have died attempting to cross the sea between Turkey and Greece.

Last year was the deadliest on record for people drowning in the Mediterranean.

Some of the bodies get washed ashore in Turkey, and many are never identified.

In the last six months, more than 100 bodies have been laid to rest in a cemetery in Izmir.

It is the graveyard of anonymous migrants.
