Police have discovered 40 illegal migrants hiding in the cargo compartment of a truck with Austrian number plates at the Nagylak border crossing with Romania.
According to police.hu, the migrants identifying themselves as Bangladeshi, Lebanese and Pakistani citizens were detected by a pool of Hungarian, Romanian and Turkish police officers on Saturday. The vehicle was driven by a Turkish national. Video footage posted on the site shows the migrants squeezed in between stacks of wooden pallets in a compartment lower than one meter. Hungarian and Romanian border guard units working in partnership at the Nagylak crossing have already taken action against 2,500 illegal migrants discovered hiding in vehicles this year, the website said.
