CGTN:  Turkey is deploying 1,000 special police officers along its border with Greece to stop refugees and migrants returning to its territory, the country’s interior minister Suleyman Soylu, announced on Thursday.
 Soylu’s comments, which included the claim that Greek authorities had injured 164 migrants, come amid a war of words between Ankara and Athens, following Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s decision to suspend a 2016 migrant deal with the EU, under which Turkey halted migration flows to Europe in return for billions of euros in aid.
 Since then, 13,000 migrants have amassed at the Turkish border with Greece in a bid to cross into Europe. Ankara has accused Greek authorities of shooting dead and injuring migrants near the border.
 Athens has rejected this, saying Turkish police were helping migrants cross the border illegally.
Speaking to reporters in the northwestern border province of Edirne, Soylu said Greek police had injured dozens of migrants trying to cross the frontier.
“They wounded 164 people. They tried to push 4,900 people back to Turkey,” he said. “We are deploying 1,000 special force police to the border system … to prevent the push-back.”
