Muscat Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

Wash­ing­ton, US - Eight per­sons were found dead on Sun­day in­side a truck in a Walmart park­ing lot in San An­to­nio, Texas in what po­lice said ap­peared to be ‘hu­man traf­fick­ing crime’.

An­other 28 peo­ple were in­jured - 20 of them se­verely - and were be­ing treated at seven lo­cal hos­pi­tals, San An­to­nio po­lice chief William McManus and fire chief Charles Hood told re­porters.

The po­lice chief said the group in­cluded chil­dren, but later told CNN that the eight dead were men. He said the truck driver had been ar­rested.

“We got a call from a Walmart em­ployee about a wel­fare check in a trac­tor­trailer that was parked on the lot here,” McManus told a news con­fer­ence.

The em­ployee re­turned with the wa­ter and then called the po­lice who ‘found eight per­sons dead in the back of that trailer,’ the po­lice chief said.
