Children, women find shelter in improvised camp in Bosnia's northwest

October 11, 2021

Some 300 migrants, mostly women and children, found a shelter in an improvised tent camp in Velika Kladusa, Bosnia's northwesternmost point, hoping they would eventually cross the border with Croatia and reach their final destinations in Europe.

Although reluctant to speak, they briefly say they plan to resume their journey as soon as the weather conditions improve.

According to N1 reporter Adisa Imamovic, the migrants have been staying in the camp for months. They prepare meals in the open, on a campfire.

Humanitarian organisations’ representatives are trying to convince them to move to official camps but they rarely do so. They prefer to stay near the border and try their chances in crossing into EU.
