Bulgarian "volunteers" filmed tying up migrants. Bulgarian Border Police chief says Migrant-hunting ‘somewhat illegal’

Amateur video shot in Bulgaria shows "volunteers" arresting three migrants and tying their hands behind their backs as they lie on the ground.

One of the "volunteers" tells them: "No Bulgaria - go back [to] Turkey."

The video was shot in Strandja, a mountainous area near the Turkish border, the Bulgarian BTV news website reported.

Bulgarian border police chief Antonio Angelov, quoted by BTV, said such an arrest of migrants was illegal.

Bulgaria has erected a razor-wire fence along 95km (59 miles) of its 269-km border with Turkey.

According to Mr Angelov, the three migrants shown in the video said they were Afghans. The video was the main story across Bulgarian TV on Monday.

Bulgaria’s Border Police chief has described the scenes on an amateur video of migrants being captured by private citizens and forced back to Turkey as “somewhat illegal”.
