TIRANA, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- Albanian police have detained 14 Syrian migrants, who were trying to travel from Greece to Germany via the country, the Albanian Daily News newspaper reported on Monday.
Police said they caught the group of Syrian citizens -- seven males and seven females, in Muriqan near the northern Albanian border with Montenegro.
The migrants said they were immigrants in Greece and illegally entered the Albanian territory in trying to proceed to Germany.
Their final destination was Germany and if they made it there, they were going to pay 1,150 euros (1,275 U.S. dollars) to two human traffickers whom they did not know.
Experts of the Albanian police department against illegal trafficking are trying to track down the two traffickers. Enditem
