    Police find 41 migrants alive in truck in northern Greece

    Greek police found 41 migrants, mostly Afghans, hiding in a refrigerated truck at a motorway in northern Greece on Monday, police officials said.

    The migrants were not injured, one of the officials said, adding that the refrigeration system had not been turned on.

    Police stopped the truck on a highway near the northern Greek city of Xanthi for a regular check. They arrested the driver and took him and the migrants to a nearby police station for identification.

    About 34,000 asylum seekers and refugees are being held in camps on the Aegean islands close to Turkey.

    Last month, 39 migrants, all believed to be Vietnamese, were found dead in a refrigerated truck near London.
