    Georgian detained after entering Turkey inside suitcase

    Police  detained a Georgian-origin woman caught attempting to illegally enter Turkey inside a suitcase, Doğan News Agency has reported.
    The woman was detected after security officials at the Sarp border gate in the Hopa district of the Black Sea province of Artvin became suspicious when a Georgian citizen tried to enter the country on foot along with a huge suitcase.
    Police halted the woman and opened the suitcase, finding a 22-year-old woman inside.
    The woman had reportedly been previously banned from entering Turkey and was trying to smuggle her way back into the country.
    After the discovery the two women were handed over to Sarp customs and intelligence officials.
