Illegal migrants caught in Greek cemetery: police

More than 100 clandestine Asian immigrants were detained on Thursday after being discovered hiding at a cemetery near Greece's northeastern border with Turkey, police said. The group, mainly from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh, hid in the cemetery at Tryfilli village after ditching the inflatable dinghies they used to cross the Evros river between Greece and Turkey, the police said. Greek border guards also caught one of three suspected traffickers who helped them cross over. The other two fled.
