‘Stacks of bodies’: 50 found dead in abandoned lorry in Texas

50 people have been found dead inside an abandoned lorry in Texas and at least a dozen others were taken to hospital with heat related illnesses.

Homeland Security officials are investigating what’s assumed to be an attempt to smuggle people across the US border.

Many of those who died were Mexican and the country’s president called it a tragedy resulting from poverty and desperation.
