Four asylum seekers entered Britain on the back of a truck carrying former Prime Minister Tony Blair's new official car, a newspaper reported Thursday. The men were arrested Wednesday morning after jumping out of the truck in a police yard where the car was being delivered, The Sun tabloid reported. The London police ordered the modified 100,000 pounds ($200,000, €143,000) gray BMW 7 Series with reinforced doors and bulletproof glass from the company's Munich headquarters, the newspaper said. Police confirmed Tuesday that they arrested four men who were inside a truck which had just delivered a vehicle to police in southwest London.
