Austrian authorities last week discovered the bodies of 71 refugees in an abandoned truck that had traveled through Hungary. "We will do controls for an undetermined length of time at all important border crossings in the eastern region, looking at all vehicles that have possible hiding places for trafficked people," Johanna Mikl-Leitner told ORF radio.
