Bulgaria has been accused of shooting a refugee after new video emerged showing a young Syrian man being fired at on the border with Turkey.
It is the first footage of an asylum seeker being hit with live ammunition on the EU border.
It follows a joint investigation by Sky News, Lighthouse Reports and European media partners.
Bordering Turkey, Bulgaria is often used as a gateway to Europe by asylum seekers with more than 150,000 people attempting to cross this year – four times as many as the same time the year before.

He shouldn't be there. None of them should.
Respect the countries rules.
And on Sundays the failed souls go to church
Hungary: first time?
When breaking the law and showing aggression, what do they expect to happen?
Maybe try to use the Border checkpoint next time? Like all normal people do and this won't happen!
What a double faced media! UK where quit EU union just to close borders for those people and now doing reports like they care about refugees lol
Today i realize how poor actors are Sky News including those refugees lol nice run on fields guys, also nice hairstyle for migrants 🙂
So what was the option? to continue allowing being invaded and pay with taxes money their invasion?
God bless fortress Europe!
They aren’t even supposed to be there
They know what they are going for. They are criminals trying to illegally enter another country and use violence against its border guards. Bulgarians have to defend yourself and defend EU from criminals trying to enter it illegally.
Economic refugee , not just refugee they were in Turkey, Turkey is safe country no need to go further.
yeah because he was throwing stones. And because during the last 3 months, already 3 border police have been murdered by "refugees". Crossing a border illegally is a criminal offense, in any normal country. Does the US let everyone pass its border to Mexico? No? Why?
What an awful comment
nyus outlet wants to pursue agenda
Victimizing the criminals. Good job SKY NEWS!!!!
There is no war in syria!
Lol protecting your border now is a crime?????? Why even in the news??? What about the the guardian that was killed a month ago? Bulgarian live matter EU!!!!
Illegally crossing the border is, well, illegal. We are defending our land. We will not step back.
I support border control!
