The grisly discovery near the Slovakia and Hungary borders came as at least 30 more migrants drowned in the Mediterranean and European leaders again met to try to find ways to handle the tide of people seeking refuge in the European Union.
Officers at the scene were unable to determine the exact number of dead, assess people's gender or determine whether there were any children among them. There were 'at least 20, but there could be as many as 40 or 50', said police spokesman Hans Peter Doskozil.
The van had the markings of a Slovakian poultry company and Hungarian number plates. More details, including the confirmed number of dead, were expected today.
Hungary said it would join the investigation into the tragedy.
