New migrant truck found in Austria, three children hospitalised

Austrian police said Saturday that they intercepted another truck containing 26 migrants and that three young children had to be hospitalised, days after 71 people died in an abandoned vehicle.

"The three small children had to be hospitalised... because of the extremely bad state of their health. Doctors said they were treated for severe dehydration," police said in a statement about the incident on Friday morning.

"If the journey had continued the situation could probably have become critical," a spokesman from police in Upper Austria state told AFP.

The vehicle, pulled over by police after a chase, contained 26 "illegal foreigners" from Syria, Bangladesh and Afghanistan who said they wanted to go to Germany, police said.

The incident happened near Braunau am Inn in western Austria close to the border with Germany. The Romanian driver, who had refused to pull over for a routine check, was arrested.

On Thursday an abandoned truck containing the bodies of 71 dead migrants including four children was found on a motorway in eastern Austria near the Hungarian border, provoking international revulsion.

Autopsies were still being carried out but police think that the migrants, likely from Syria, suffocated from lack of air and had been dead for up to two days before the refrigerated truck was noticed by motorway maintenance workers.

 Austria borders Hungary, which has seen more than 140,000 migrants enter from Serbia this year, most of whom then seek to travel onwards to western European countries like Germany and Sweden, via Austria.

  1. Police in Austria say three Syrian children and their families who were rescued from a minivan containing 26 migrants have disappeared from the hospital where they were being treated...

    The children were taken to hospital in the town of Braunau am Inn on Friday suffering from severe dehydration.

    Their discovery came a day after 71 bodies, thought to be migrants, were found on a dumped lorry in Austria.

    Several European countries have called for urgent talks on the migrant crisis.

    Austrian police said they stopped the minivan in Braunau, which sits on the country's border with Germany, on Friday and arrested its Romanian driver.

    The children - two girls and a boy aged between one and five years old - were said to have been crammed in the back along with other migrants from Syria, Afghanistan and Bangladesh............http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34101314
