Greek Police Nab 18 Refugees on Way to Albania; Arrest Two Greek Women Smuggling Them North

Police in northern Greece today (October 11, 2016) arrested two Greek women suspected of trying to smuggle a group of Syrian refugees over the rugged border with Albania, according to the Newsmax website.

The suspects were discovered early today, driving two cars carrying a total of 18 Syrians -- including six children -- to the border in the northern Kastoria region.

Police said the refugees had been planning to continue their journey from Albania toward an unspecified more affluent northern European country.

Many refugees pay gangs to smuggle them northward through FYROM (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) or Bulgaria, with Albania a rarer option.
