    KAKAVIJE, August 20 (ata) - By H Cani: Albanian police turned back to Greece 11 Kurds who tried to enter the Albanian territory from the border point of Kakavije on Thursday morning.

    According to police in Kakavije, the Kurds were stopped while they were crossing the border, about 100-150 meters from the entry and after the necessary procedures, were sent back to Greece.

    A police officer of the Greek border point told ATA that "about 20-23 other Kurds wanted to enter the Albanian territory later but the return of the first eleven stopped them from their adventure."

    The Kurd emigrants who have the permit to stay in Greece, aim to reach the Italian coast through Albania and from there to go to Germany. In the recent days, according to the Italian press, local police caught on the Italian coast of Otranto 13 Kurd emigrants coming from Albania.

    According to the spokesman of Gjirokastra police, during this year over 3,500 immigrants from Kurdistan are not allowed to enter Albania through Kakavije border point and the customs house of Qafe Bote. But even higher is the number of those who have managed to cross the Albanian border, said the same source. The payment to make a transit through Albania varies from 500 to 1000 dollars, while only a few months ago to reach the Albanian shores one had to pay 1000 to 2000 dollars. A guide from Gjirokaster said that the "price" had fallen because many Albanian and Greek traffikers have many a time cheated the weary Asian emigrants. /xh/fh/
