Migrant smuggler arrested in Thessaloniki


Police in Thessaloniki said on Saturday they arrested a member of a people trafficking gang with 10 migrants packed in his car.

The suspect – a 34-year-old foreign national – was arrested following a car chase along the Egnatia Highway, near the Analipsi toll station, after he ignored a police signal to stop late Friday night.

Officers who eventually caught up with the suspect found the migrants in the car.
