North Macedonia police find 47 migrants in abandoned truck

Police in North Macedonia say officers on border patrol found 47 migrants in an abandoned truck near the borders with Bulgaria and Greece

Police say officers intercepted a total of 1,365 migrants who entered North Macedonia illegally in the first three weeks of the year.

In a separate case, a criminal court in Skopje gave a two-year suspended sentence to a German man and an Italian woman convicted of trying to smuggle three people into North Macedonia from Greece last month with fake ID documents.
