SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina | Bosnia says it will stop illegal migration amid increase
SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Bosnia police will increase patrols along its borders with Serbia and Montenegro to prevent a growing influx of migrants illegally trying to reach Western Europe, a top official said Thursday.
Migrants have recently turned to Bosnia to avoid more heavy guarded routes and borders in other Balkan countries. Hundreds have been camping outdoors in Sarajevo, the capital, and other towns.
“We will stop the flow of migrants in any part of the territory that is not an official border crossing,” said Denis Zvizdic, the head of Bosnia’s Council of Ministers.
