Truck four face court
BUDAPEST: Four suspected human traffickers pleaded not guilty in a Hungarian court over the 71 decomposing bodies found in a truck in Austria, marking a sickening new low in Europe’s migrant crisis.
Europe is struggling to find a coherent approach as its governments face a record influx of hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict in the Middle East and Africa.
Police said the victims, believed to be mainly Syrian refugees, may have been dead for two days. The court remanded three Bulgarians, aged 29, 30 and 50, and an Afghan, 28, in custody until September 29.
