No signs dead migrants on lorry tried to get out - police

EISENSTADT, Austria (Reuters) - The 71 migrants found dead in the back of an abandoned lorry in Austria last week showed no signs of having tried to break free, police told a news conference on Friday.

They appeared to have fallen unconscious slowly and only had enough oxygen for an hour to an hour and a half, police said.
