Upto 50 bodies have been found in a truck on a highway in Austria, authorities say. Austrian police believe that the people inside were already dead when the truck crossed Austria.

The bodies were discovered after a highway patrol officer investigated a pungent smell and liquid coming from the back of a truck abandoned near the Austrian village of Parndorf on the main expressway between Vienna and Budapest.

The truck displayed the logo of a Slovakian poultry company, Hyza, which said in a statement that the vehicle no longer belonged to the firm – but the new owners had not removed the branding.

Austria’s Chancellor Werner Faymann said the tragedy showed once again “how necessary it is to save lives by combating criminals and people traffickers”.

Forensics record that it will take several days to secure an evidence. Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner announced that Austria would tighten its border controls in order to keep a check on international trains in the coming days.  She also denounced that we all ought to show “zero tolerance” for people smugglers.

The timing of the unfortunate incident is such, that it comes along with a summit focusing on migration taking place in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

  • Due to the cold weather of Austria Salman Khan faces health problem while shooting Tiger Zinda Hai.

Tiger Zinda Hai starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will be Released on 22 December 2017

Challenging weather conditions in Austria during the shoot of “Tiger Zinda Hai” led to a health issue for actor Salman Khan, says director Ali Abbas Zafar.

Talking about shooting for the film in the locales of Austria, Zafar said in a statement: “What we see onscreen might look a lot easier than it actually is. Sometimes, sequences like the ones shot in Austria can be difficult to achieve.

“For a significant chapter in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, we had to film in a place that had a certain amount of aloofness and isolation. We found that spot in the mountains of Austria, a place where time seemed to stand still and frozen.

“Shooting here meant dealing with unexpected situations. Literally, a lot of pain had gone behind this sequence. Salman developed a health issue, but he still trained to film here and delivered on a tough action sequence.”

The team shot a song there.

“We had expertise on our side since we worked with an international crew that has worked on the latest James Bond film ‘Spectre’. In the end, as a team, we are fairly satisfied that we managed to film here successfully,” he added.

“Tiger Zinda Hai”, which also stars Katrina Kaif, is a sequel to “Ek Tha Tiger”. It is slated to release on December 22 and has been shot across five countries. (IANS)
