The news agency also says that during the weekend, children from the village noticed several men carrying their luggage and were walking on the international railway line. The children told their parents that the people were speaking in a foreign language, with the foreigners making signs to the children to keep silent, Novinite adds. The Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) informs that adults from the village noticed as well the group which quickly disappeared in the darkness.
