150 MI­GRANTS STRANDED ON TRAIN AT BOS­NIAN BOR­DER

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Regional -

Au­thor­i­ties in north­west­ern Bos­nia have banned some 150 mi­grants from get­ting off a train in a bid to curb a mi­grant flow across the bor­der to Croatia, a Eu­ro­pean Union mem­ber. The mi­grants have been stranded on the train since early Fri­day when it ar­rived to the town of Bi­hac from the cap­i­tal Sara­jevo. Thou­sands of peo­ple have flocked to war-rav­aged Bos­nia in re­cent months, try­ing to cross to Croatia and move on to­ward other EU coun­tries in the West. The coun­try has been strug­gling with the ar­rivals. Au­thor­i­ties in the north­west­ern cor­ner of Bos­nia have been send­ing mi­grants back to other parts of the coun­try say­ing they can­not ac­com­mo­date any more peo­ple.
