Some 64 Bangladeshi migrants have been found in a truck on a highway near the North Macedonia's border with Greece, according to the police of the country.
The driver avoided arrest during the inspection on June 22 near Strumica in the country's southeast, reports The New York Times.
North Macedonia Police gave no other details about the migrants.
The migrants were detained and transferred to a holding site in border town of Gevgelija, pending deportation to Greece.
The so-called Balkan migration route, mostly running through former Yugoslav republics, has been closed since 2015 and Greek border with North Macedonia was closed earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But police say trafficking networks remain active in the border area.
