More than 30 migrants from Pakistan have been found hidden in a lorry in southern France, prosecutors said yesterday.
They said the driver, who was also from Pakistan, was detained.

The group of 31 Pakistani migrants was discovered during a routine check on a motorway near the Italian border on Friday, French prosecutors said.
