Police stopped an Audi whose driver was caught transporting 10 Syrian migrants toward Serbia.
The vehicle was stopped yesterday, on the highway from Kumanovo toward the Tabanovce border crossing with Serbia. The 47 year old driver was detained and the migrants will be temporarily housed in Kumanovo.
Migrant traffickers are stopped practically every day on the highway linking Greece and Serbia through Macedonia, even after Macedonia closed its border with Greece for unregulated entries and placed a wire fence on the main illegal crossings in 2016. Authorities are expecting an increase in the flow of migrants, as Greece faces a rise in arrivals on its Aegean islands.
