A 20-year-old Bangladeshi migrant was killed and 12 injured when a van with 13 migrants hit the back of a truck on the southern main road, police from North Macedonia said.

Ten migrants were Pakistanis and three were from Bangladesh. Four seriously injured migrants have been transferred to clinics in the capital Skopje, while eight others are being treated at a hospital in Kavadarci. The driver of the van fled the scene.

Migrants are believed to have entered Greece illegally and paid smugglers to drive them across Serbia from the north to the prosperous center of Europe.
