Police discovers 35 foreigners in lorries heading to German border

Czech police on Friday stopped two lorries carrying 35 foreigners, including 13 children, on the D5 motorway heading towards the main western border crossing with Germany at Rozvadov. According to police spokeswoman Veronika Horková, the lorries came from Romania through Hungary and Slovakia.

The migrants, who most likely come from Eastern Europe, were placed in a detention centre and will be questioned to determine whether they have asked for asylum anywhere in Europe. The drivers of the lorries have also been detained on suspicion of people smuggling.
