Port authorities in Igoumenitsa, northwestern Greece, located on Tuesday 51 illegal migrants from Asia hidden in a truck transporting plastics abroad.
The 33 year-old Iraqi truck driver was paid to take the migrants to Italy.

The illegal migrants were located during a check control.

The driver was arrested and sent before the Igoumenitsa prosecutor.

Police said the migrants were in a state of exhaustion, after spending two days hidden in the truck.
