PARIS: Over 30 Pakistani migrants, including three teenagers, were found hidden in a truck after it was intercepted during a routine check on a motorway in southern France, prosecutors said on Saturday.
The 30 migrants, along with the driver of the truck, who is also of Pakistani origin, were handed over to Italian authorities for “facilitating the illegal entry” into the French territory, Sputnik reported, citing Nice-Matin newspaper.
The incident has come days after bodies of 39 migrants were found from inside a truck at an industrial park in Grays, a town located 40 kilometres east of London, UK. Five suspects, including the truck driver, were arrested in connection with the incident, and three were later released on bail.
