Pair charged after 51 die in sweltering Texas truck


At least 51 migrants have died after being trapped inside a sweltering truck found abandoned in Texas, authorities say, as two Mexican nationals tied to the smuggling incident were charged in a US federal court. Investigators traced the truck's vehicle registration to a San Antonio address that they placed under surveillance, and arrested the two men separately when each was seen leaving the residence. The truck had been left parked next to some railroad tracks on the outskirts of San Antonio, where temperatures soared to a high of 39.4degC. Flowers, candles, and water bottles at the scene where dozens of migrants were found dead inside a trailer truck in San Antonio. In July 2017, 10 migrants died after being transported in a tractor-trailer discovered by San Antonio police in a Walmart carpark.
