A Palestinian illegal immigrant was injured by a land mine after entering a minefield on Greece's northeastern border with Turkey, the army said Thursday. A Greek army statement said the Palestinian, along with another illegal immigrant from Iraq, who was also injured, entered the fenced minefield on Wednesday night, and were rescued early Thursday. The migrants were hospitalized in the nearby town of Didymoteicho, some 950 kilometers (590 miles) northeast of Athens, but the extent of their injuries was not immediately clear. Four illegal immigrants have been killed by mines in two separate incidents after straying into minefields on the Greek side of the border since July.
