Ivrea (Italy): Fifty Syrian migrants were detained early Tuesday aboard a bus near the northern Italian city of Turin, and are believed to have been heading for the French or Swiss border.

Police detained the migrants in the early hours of Tuesday outside Ivrea, about 40 km north of Turin.

All the Syrians have claimed political asylum and were in the process of being identified by police.

Migrants are entitled to request asylum in the country in which they are identified, although many prefer to reach northern Europe.
