Austrian officials said Friday, the death toll after a truck "full of bodies" was found abandoned on the side of a highway has reached 71. Authorities also confirmed that three suspects believed to be involved in people smuggling have been arrested in connection with the case. At least one other individual is being hunted. The victims included 59 men, eight women and four children — including a girl who was no older than two years of age. Police originally thought up to 50 refugees had died inside the refrigerated vehicle, which had been parked up on the shoulder of the busy road linking eastern Europe to France and Germany. The grim discovery was made Thursday about 10 miles from Austria's border with Slovakia and Hungary. Workers cutting grass at the side of the road noticed fluids from the decomposing bodies seeping from the truck's back door.
After three years of waiting, Assassin’s Creed fans can finally get their first look at Michael Fassbender from the upcoming video game-based film.
