Online Desk ; Sixty-four Bangladeshi migrants have been found in a truck on a highway near North Macedonia’s border with Greece, reports the Associated Press as published in the New York Times today (Tuesday).
The driver evaded arrest during the inspection late Monday near Strumica in the country’s southeast region, said police in a statement on Tuesday.
Police gave no other details about the migrants.
The migrants were detained and transferred to a holding site in border town of Gevgelija and were pending deportation to Greece.
The so-called Balkan migration route, mostly running through former Yugoslav republics, had been closed since 2015 and Greek border with North Macedonia was closed earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But police said that trafficking networks remained active in the border area.
