A South African-registered truck has been impounded by Mozambican police. The vehicle, intercepted at the Machipanda border post with Zimbabwe, was found transporting 82 illegal immigrants of Ethiopian nationality on Tuesday afternoon.

The Mozambican police reported that the truck attempted to cross into Zimbabwe when it was apprehended.

A significant twist in the incident involved the arrest of a Mozambican police officer, who is suspected of aiding the truck driver in this trafficking operation.
