Eisenstadt, Austria to mourn them
Hungarian police have arrested the driver of a lorry found
on an Austrian motorway with the decomposing bodies of more than 70 people
inside. The driver has been proven to be a Romanian. Seven smugglers also linked
to the lorry had been held by authorities in Hungary.  But the main organisers are still at large,
and believed to be in Romania.
The death toll was raised on Friday from initial estimates
of 20 to 50 following the discovery of the remains on Thursday morning on
Austria’s A4 motorway between Neusiedl and Parndorf. The truck, which had been
abandoned on the hard shoulder of the road near Parndorf, had apparently been
there since Wednesday. Austrian police said all those on board appeared to have
suffocated and died before they entered the country.

Austrian police said of the 71 dead, 59 were men, eight
women and four children, and included Syrian refugees.
The lorry set off from Budapest in the early hours of
Wednesday morning, and reached the Hungarian-Austrian border by 9am. It crossed
into Austria that night and was spotted on the A4 at 5am or 6am on Thursday,
police said.
