Illegal migrants give Slovak police the slip in Austria

Four Slovak police officers suffered an embarrassing turn of events at Vienna airport on Wednesday when an incident involving illegal immigrants occurred. A police operation at Vienna-Schwechat international airport had to be suspended on Wednesday evening when two Moroccans managed to slip away from their Slovak police escorts and escape onto the runway. The Moroccan migrants, who were being deported from the Slovak Republic, were transported to Vienna airport with a four-member Slovak security escort. They were slated to return to their homeland via Vienna and Paris. Following the escape it was necessary to summon Austrian police officers, who captured one of the illegal migrants within a few minutes. The other man was caught after 20 minutes with the assistance of a police helicopter.
