Twelve Illegal Migrants Detained After Car Pursuit in Sofia
Twelve illegal migrants were detained in the Bulgarian capital on Thursday after a short car pursuit with the police.
Police officers ordered the driver of a minibus traveling on the Tsarigradsko Shose boulevard to stop for a check.
However the driver disobeyed the police order and a short pursuit ensued. The police managed to stop the vehicle after a short chase and to conduct a check despite the resistance of the driver.
They found twelve men who claimed to be from Afghanistan, the interior ministry's press service informs.
The driver of the minibus has been identified as a 58-year-old man from Sofia with a criminal record.
The foreigners have been taken to the district police department for establishing their identity and origin.
In a separate case, border policemen discovered the bodies of two men without identity documents near the southeastern town of Malko Tarnovo on Wednesday.
It is believed that the two men had illegally crossed the Bulgarian border from Turkey. No traces of violence have been observed on the bodies which are in the stage of decomposition.
The bodes have been taken for a post-mortem examination to the hospital in Burgas, with the first conclusions of the doctors expected to come out on Thursday.
