Greek police found on Wednesday 14 migrants hidden in a specially built crypt at the ceiling of a truck that entered the country from Bulgaria.

The two 48-year-old Bulgarian traffickers were arrested after the inspection of the vehicle which stopped at the border crossing of Sapes, in Rhodopi. Police said the small crypt where the 12 Pakistanis and two Indians were squeezed into lacked adequate ventilation, while the temperature in the truck was too high.

A prosecutor charged the traffickers with illegal transport of irregular migrants in the country in a way that endangered human life.(Source: ANA-MPA)
