ATHENS, Greece — Police in western Greece say they have found four men dead in a truck abandoned outside a cemetery.

The bodies were discovered in the vehicle on Tuesday in the western town of Amphilochia, 420 kilometers (260 miles) northwest of Athens. The semitrailer truck had Italian license plates and was loaded with lumber.

Police say they believe the men were illegal immigrants from Iraq but gave no other details.

A state coroner says the men died of suffocation, but that one of the four had died two days after the other three.

Greece is the European Union's busiest transit point for illegal immigrants entering the 27-nation bloc.
