Coffins with bodies of migrants who died in an abandoned lorry are unloaded from a van on August 28, 2015 at a forensics institute in ViennaHungary said Friday it has arrested four people over the discovery of 71 decomposing bodies in an abandoned truck in Austria, another grim tragedy involving migrants desperately seeking refuge in Europe. In the horrific incident -- a rare occurrence on land in a prosperous country when so many migrants have died at sea -- Austrian police said the dead were likely Syrians and included a toddler and three young boys. "Among these 71 people, there were 59 men, eight women and four children including a young girl one or two years old and three boys aged eight, nine or 10," police spokesman Hans Peter Doskozil told a news conference.

People make their way next to Greek national flags and a European Union flag in AthensBy Angeliki Koutantou and Renee Maltezou ATHENS (Reuters) - Former Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' leftist Syriza will emerge as the biggest party in next month's election but without the majority it was hoping for, the first opinion polls since he resigned last week showed on Friday. One found that almost two thirds of voters felt Tsipras should not have sought a fresh mandate, while three surveys showed that his favored coalition ally, the Independent Greeks party, would not make it into parliament. Syriza was supported by 23 percent of those polled by ProRata for Friday's Efimerida Ton Syntakton newspaper, with the conservative opposition New Democracy party second on 19.5 percent.
