Armed robbers hijacked a truck full of merchandise in Thessaloniki after locking up the driver and co-driver in a car trunk.

The two robbers approached the truck, which was parked near a railway station, and at gunpoint forced the driver -- a foreign national -- and the co-driver to get out of the truck, and locked them in the trunk of a car, which they drove to a different spot and abandoned it.

The robbers escaped with the truck, which was filled with clothing, and are being sought by police.
