POLICE FIND 41 MIGRANTS ALIVE IN REFRIGERATED TRUCK IN GREECE  

Forty-one people have been found alive in a refrigerated truck in northern Greece, said Greek police, who have arrested the driver.

The people, of apparent Afghan origin, were mostly in good health, said police on Monday but seven received first-aid treatment in hospital.

“The truck contained men and boys. Identifying their nationality will require a couple of days,” a police source told AFP.

The truck was stopped on the Egnatia motorway between the towns of Xanthi and Komotini. The male driver, from Georgia, was arrested. Local media said the police were seeking a second man from Turkey in connection with the incident. The discovery of the migrants comes after the deaths of 39 people, all believed to be Vietnamese nationals, who were found in a refrigerated truck in Essex last month and highlights the risks made by those trying to gain entry to Europe by perilous routes.
