Nigerians among 12 African migrants caught sneaking into Germany underneath a freight train

German police have detained 12 men, aged between 16 and 29, from Nigeria, Somalia and Ivory Coast, who hid underneath the cargo of a freight train coming from Italy after other entry points were tightened up.

According to Reuters, the men boarded the Munich-bound freight train in Verona, in northern Italy and were found after officials used heat-detection cameras. The men, who were freezing cold and in a poor physical state, were pulled out of a metal frame underneath the lorry containers mounted on the carriage and emergency services to crosscheck their health status were immediately notified.
