By Karin Strohecker PARNDORF, Austria (Reuters) - As many as 50 corpses were found in a parked truck in Austria on Thursday, and another migrant boat sank off Libya, deepening a crisis that is overwhelming Europe and throwing up new tragedies by the day. The abandoned refrigerated truck was found by an Austrian motorway patrol near the Hungarian border, with fluids from the decomposing bodies seeping from its back door. "One can maybe assume that the deaths occurred one-and-a-half to two days ago," Hans Peter Doskozil, police chief in the province of Burgenland, told a news conference, adding that "many things" indicated the migrants were already dead when the truck crossed the border.
GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — GOP presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are expected to headline a Capitol Hill rally against President Obama's proposed nuclear agreement with Iran, both candidates confirmed Thursday.
Saudi Arabia's King Salman will meet President Barack Obama at the White House on Sept. 4, the White House said, as Washington and Riyadh seek to shore up relations after a period of tension mainly over a U.S.-led nuclear deal with Iran. It will be Salman's first visit to the United States since ascending the throne in January and follows his decision to skip a U.S. summit of Gulf Arab leaders that Obama hosted in May. The trip will come less than two weeks before a possible U.S. congressional vote on last month's landmark nuclear agreement between six world powers and Iran, Riyadh's regional rival, a deal that troubles the Saudi kingdom.
