A new group of 21 migrants, children and young men, detained police around the ‘Republica’ Pass in Veliko Tarnovo region.

The group was spotted last night around the passage, probably abandoned by the traffickers. There were only children and young men aged 10 to 25. During the interrogations they claimed that they were from Afghanistan, the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Veliko Tarnovo announced. Both the social services and the child protection department have been notified.

They underwent medical examinations. The group is to be sent to one of the refugee centers.

A migrant canal is probably passing through the ‘Republica’ Pass, and this is evidenced by the five groups with 70 children and young people, which have been obliged since the beginning of the month. A police checkpoint has already been set up.
