Two Bulgarian nationals faced a prosecutor in Rhodopi, northern Greece, Wednesday on charges of attempting to smuggle undocumented migrants into the country after authorities found 14 people hidden in a special compartment in the roof of their truck.

The two suspects, both aged 48, were stopped by police near the junction for Komotini on the Egnatia Highway and a subsequent inspection of the truck they were in revealed that 12 Pakistanis and two Indians had been hidden in the roof.
