Sir: I am seriously concerned about your front page story " `The plane is going to Turkey,' said the official. `But don't tell the refugees. They might refuse to get on' " (report, 7 April).

Turkey is not a place where people do not want to go. Millions of European tourists visit Turkey every year. The refugees do not want to go to Turkey because their relatives are not in Turkey. They do not want to go to Turkey because they are separated from their families and they think that they might never see their relatives again.

You should have praised Turkey since it has accepted 20,000 refugees.
