Man who hid in cargo plane found dead in Amsterdam


The body of a dead stowaway was found on Saturday in the landing gear of a cargo plane at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, police said.

Border police spokesman Dennis Muller said the flight had arrived from Africa, but declined to provide more details about the origin or airline due to an ongoing investigation into the death. He also gave no details about the stowaway.

The discovery came as Europe struggles with the most serious refugee crisis since World War Two.

Roughly 1,500 asylum seekers, mostly from war-torn countries in the Middle East and Africa, arrive in the Netherlands per week and Dutch reception centres are near capacity.
