Police Find 41 Mostly Afghan Migrants Alive in Refrigerator Truck in Greece

Just weeks after the grim discovery in the UK, another refrigerated truck filled with migrants have been discovered this time in northern Greece.

Greek police has said that the 41 migrants, mostly from Afghanistan, were not injured, but seven of them were taken to hospital as a precaution.

The migrants, all men aged between 20 and 30 without documents, had difficulty breathing.

The truck’s refrigeration system was turned off at the time of the discovery.

After stopping the truck on a highway for a regular check, police arrested the driver from Georgia.

This comes as Greece has been struggling with the biggest surge in refugees since 2015.
