By Karin Strohecker VIENNA (Reuters) - The 71 people found dead in an abandoned refrigeration lorry in Austria had been crammed in, five to a square meter (10 sq ft), police said on Sunday, as initial forensic tests indicated they had suffocated. A baby girl and three other children were among the dead in truck discovered on Thursday on a highway from the Hungarian border to Vienna, where it had been left 24 hours earlier. The victims are thought to be refugees from Syria or possibly Afghanistan, part of an huge wave of migrants pushing through Europe that is sorely testing the European Union's ability to cope.
Hurricane Ignacio moved menacingly closer to Hawaii on Sunday but the worst of the powerful storm should spare the American archipelago, according to latest forecasts. With maximum sustained winds of near 135 miles per hour (215 kilometers) the National Weather Service has Ignacio -- a category-four hurricane -- continuing northward of the islands. After initial fears of a Hawaii landfall, the latest reports put the hurricane 430 miles from Hawaii and continuing on a northwest course out to sea, although it will still cause strong winds and rain to drench Hawaii.
