Imperial Valley Press - - CLASSIFIED -

Ger­man po­lice say they have stopped a truck near the Ger­man-Pol­ish bor­der with 51 people squeezed inside, among them 17 chil­dren.

Federal po­lice say the truck was stopped early Satur­day on the high­way A12 near the eastern Ger­man town of Muell­rose.

Po­lice said some of the people inside were de­hy­drated and all were thirsty and hun­gry. They were taken to the nearby town of Frank­furt an der Oder where they re­ceived food, drinks and med­i­cal care. Ac­cord­ing to first find­ings, most of the people are from Iraq.

Po­lice said the 46-yearold Turk­ish driver was de­tained on sus­pi­cion of hu­man traf­fick­ing. The truck was also reg­is­tered in Tur­key.
