Two Syrians have died as a result of a collision in Slovenia, in which a people-smuggler lost control of a vehicle containing a total of eight illegal migrants.

The accident occurred on a motorway between the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana and Italy, according to police, who say that a third passenger, hidden in the trunk of the vehicle, was also injured, AFP reports.

Investigators identified the driver of the vehicle as a 42-tear-old Bosnian national who had entered Slovenia via Croatia.

The Bosnian border with Croatia has become a hotspot for attempted crossings by illegal migrants and asylum seekers in recent months.

Earlier this week, a migrant attempting to cross into Croatia was shot by border police after resisting officers and slightly wounded.
