Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday lashed out at EU states for turning the Mediterranean into a "cemetery" for migrants, accusing Europe of being responsible for every migrant's death.

"European countries, which turned the Mediterranean Sea -- the cradle of ancient civilizations -- into a migrant cemetery are party to the crime that takes place when each refugee loses their life," Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara.
