A special immigration unit based in Alexandroupolis, northern Greece on Wednesday reported the arrest of four Iraqi migrant trafficers as they were transporting 19 illegal migrants into Greece. The migrants included 14 Iraqis, four Iranian and a Palestinian.
The arrests were made on Tuesday afternoon in a rural region around Alexandroupolis following a surveillance operation targeting the four traffickers.
Officers also confiscated two vehicles driven by the migrant traffickers that were later found to be reported stolen in Attica and the port city of Patras.
