Police discover 17 migrants in unventilated lorry, ambulance called

Hungarian police discovered 17 illegal migrants in an unventilated lorry compartment on Thursday afternoon in Kistelek, in southern Hungary, and they called an ambulance, whose medics treated Egyptians and a Libyan, according to the force's website.

Tipped off by the Romanian authorities, the police searched a Turkish truck and its 34-year-old Turkish driver, and discovered 16 Egyptian men and one Libyan man crammed into the cold, airless goods space. Medics treated the foreigners on the spot.

Proceedings have been launched against the people smugglers.
