51 IRAQI MIGRANTS, INCL 17 CHILDREN, FOUND CRAMMED IN BERLIN-BOUND TRUCK!

A group of 51 migrants, including 17 children, has been found crammed in a truck heading to Berlin, German federal police say. The exhausted migrants were taken for questioning, while the Turkish driver was arrested for alleged human trafficking

Early Saturday, police said they pulled over a truck with Turkish license plates on federal highway A12 near the town of Muellrose, not far from the Polish border, revealing “a shocking picture,”according to Der Spiegel. 20 men, 14 women, 10 boys and seven girls were squeezed inside the vehicle. According to the police report, these were several families of Iraqi origin.

Although no injuries have been reported, the migrants were hungry and thirsty, with one of them showing signs of dehydration. All of them have been examined and taken to a police station in Frankfurt (Oder) for questioning. One of them was apparently documented as a refugee in Romania. Police opened an investigation into suspected illegal border crossing. After completing the procedures, they will be taken to a reception center in Eisenhüttenstadt.
