SKOPJE, North Macedonia — A motor vehicle packed with 16 Syrian migrants crashed even though making an attempt to steer clear of a law enforcement roadblock in North Macedonia and 4 of its occupants have been hurt, authorities reported Friday.
A law enforcement assertion claimed the incident occurred on a freeway in the vicinity of the northern border with Serbia late Thursday. A gentleman from North Macedonia was arrested on suspicion of driving the car.
The four wounded migrants were hospitalized with non daily life-threatening accidents.
North Macedonia, a very small Balkan place of 1.8 million, is on a important route applied by migrants from the Mideast and Asia to achieve wealthier European nations around the world — generally just after shelling out big sums to smuggling gangs. Most enter illegally from Greece.
Two months in the past, 35 men and women were hurt when a truck carrying Syrian migrants overturned in North Macedonia.
