Bulgaria accused of shooting a refugee on the Turkish border.

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 - four times the same period last year.
