Greece: 11 migrants die burned alive in a crashed vehicle

The eleven passengers of a vehicle suspected of smuggling migrants were burned to death in a frontal collision with a truck on Saturday in northern Greece, police said.

The driver of the truck, which was heading to Kavala, a city on the northeast coast, which was also burned in the accident, however, escaped unscathed.

The firefighters extracted eleven bodies of the vehicle that was traveling to Thessalonica, an agglomeration also located in the northern part of the Aegean Sea.

The Greek police said in a statement that the vehicle had been used in the past for the illegal passage of migrants and that his driver did not comply with the summons of police officers who wanted to carry out a check earlier on Saturday.

Last June, a van used by smugglers carrying 16 people, mostly from Syria and Iran, had an accident near Kavala that killed six people, including three children.
