At least 12 illegal immigrants have been detained in Zambia’s Luangwa district while an unknown number have escaped when police intercepted vehicles they were traveling in, a police spokesperson said Thursday.

The incident happened Wednesday when police officers at a checkpoint intercepted vehicles coming from the eastern part of the country and heading to Lusaka, the country’s capital.

Godfrey Chilabi, the deputy public relations officer of the police, said in a statement that 12 illegal immigrants were found in the first car driven by a Zambian driver while other immigrants who were in another car ran away upon seeing police presence.

The illegal immigrants are suspected to be Somali nationals, he said.
