Turkey's coast guard says it has caught 39 migrants who were attempting to cross the Aegean Sea to reach Greece.

Information about the nationalities in the group, which was stopped Thursday, hasn't been released.

The coast guard also shared footage Friday of a migrant boat being stopped on June 15 off the coast of Cesme, a Turkish seaside town.

It said 51 migrants, including 13 women and 9 children, were stopped from making the journey. Among them were 33 Syrians and 18 Eritreans.

The coast guard said 25,954 migrants have been caught since Jan. 1, including 346 since the beginning of June. The number of migrants who have succeeded in getting to Greece has dwindled since a Turkey-EU migrant deal reached on March 20.

The medical aid organization Doctors Without Borders says it will no longer seek European Union funding in protest against the EU's migrant deal with Turkey.

Secretary General Jerome Oberreit said Friday that Doctors Without Borders "will no longer request funds from the EU and its member states."

The EU money totaled around 46 million euros ($52 million) in 2015, about eight percent of the organization's total budget.

Oberreit said the group still plans to keep working in Greece and Turkey and will seek money from other sources to keep its projects going.
