Police in Austria arrested three men in connection with the gruesome discovery of 71 bodies, believed to be migrants attempting to flee war-ravaged Syria for safety in Europe. Authorities believe that the group suffocated to death while be transported by human traffickers in the back of a box truck. The country’s interior minister called for a crackdown on traffickers, saying, "People smugglers are criminals and not well-minded helpers. They do not care about the well-being of the refugees, they care about profit." Two of the men arrested were drivers of the truck that was left abandoned on the side of the highway. The other owned the truck. According to the International Organization for Migration, this year alone, 2,373 migrants have died at sea while attempting to get to Europe, many on dangerous boats overloaded by human traffickers.

Two men in Poland claim they discovered a Nazi ‘ghost train’ filled with with gold and jewels. According to the Daily News, legend has it that a “train laden with treasure that belonged to the Wehrmacht disappeared into a mountain tunnel toward the end of the World War II.” The train—carrying guns, jewels and other treasure—entered a mountain tunnel in the Lower Silesian region of what’s now part of Poland and never re-emerged. Apparently, the tunnel closed later, and everyone just forgot the location. Still, some experts claim the train never existed, and these two men are attention-grabbing.
