OVIEDO, Spain (AA) – Catalan police intercepted a group of 20 Afghan men in a shipping container on Tuesday, which had arrived at the port of Tarragona and was being driven to another Spanish city.

Local authorities in the town of Alcover, Catalonia, where the people aged 20 to 40 were discovered, confirmed that the men were in good health and were being given food and water.

Catalan police told local media that the shipping container carrying the migrants was sent from Turkey to the Mediterranean port of Tarragona.

The truck driver, who was transporting the container from the port to the city of Zaragoza, reportedly discovered the men stowed away after he heard noises coming from inside the container.

Catalan police transferred the case to Spain’s national police force, who are investigating the ship that carried the container.

Last March, Turkish authorities found 55 migrants from Iraq in two shipping containers at a port in Turkey’s Izmir province who were bound for Italy.
