Bodies of 13 Somalis believed to have suffocated in the back of a container truck were discovered on Tuesday in a village in central Mozambique.

According to the authorities, the bodies were found dumped in a bush some 200 metres from a police station in Cheringoma in Sofala Province.

The Mozambican government said investigations are ongoing but did not give any details.

A government source quoted in the local O País newspaper said the Somalia nationals were suspected illegal immigrants travelling from the north to south of the country.

“They were probably illegal migrants who were being ferried in a container truck and may have died of suffocation.
