Six migrants found hidden in a truck in Mazamet

France 3/Scoop, Oct 8

Six migrants were found in the trailer of a truck in Mazamet, in the Tarn. Alerted by noises, the driver called the police, who found six men from Africa who were trying to enter France illegally.

According to reports, the migrants took advantage of the driver’s stop in Ventimiglia, to sneak discreetly into the trailer. 500 km later, the driver started hearing noises from the back of his truck, so he pulled over near Mazamet and called the police from Saint-Amans-Soult.

The six men were from Eritrea, Mali, Gambia and Senegal. They were immediately arrested and placed in the administrative detention centre of Cornebarrieu, near Toulouse.
