The Korea Times - - WORLD -

NICE (AFP) — More than 30 mi­grants from Pak­istan have been found hid­den in a lorry in south­ern France, pros­e­cu­tors said Satur­day.

They said the driver, who was also from Pak­istan, was de­tained.

The dis­cov­ery came af­ter 39 peo­ple, all be­lieved to be Viet­namese na­tion­als, were found dead in a re­frig­er­ated truck in Bri­tain last month, lay­ing bare again the risks of il­le­gal mi­grant routes to Europe.

The group of 31 Pak­istani mi­grants was dis­cov­ered dur­ing a rou­tine check on a mo­tor­way near the Ital­ian bor­der on Fri­day, French pros­e­cu­tors said.
