Police say 18 migrants from Afghanistan were detained in the southern border station of Sturovo. They were traveling from Hungary under the carriages.

Police say another group of 12 was detained later when they continued their journey by foot. No further details have been immediately provided.

Slovakia has been rarely used by migrants trying to reach western European countries, such as Germany.
