Illegal Migrants Hiding in Mattresses

15 August

Spanish border guards in the Spanish enclave of Melilla were suspicious of a load of mattresses being imported from Morocco. On closer inspection, the guards discovered illegal immigrants hiding inside the mattresses. The filling had been hollowed out, and the men were sewn inside, hidden from view. The migrants say they paid traffickers more than $5,000 each to be smuggled into the European Union.
