"We will try to track down the network and the people behind it, as we did when dealing with similar cases," said the Prosecutor's office of the Nice city, southeastern France.
The incident came shortly after the Essex County Police, England discovered 39 people were killed in a refrigerated container. British police on November 1 reported that the victims in the case of 39 people killed in container trucks were Vietnamese citizens and were identifying the victims.
