- Migrants moved towards the border between BiH and Croatia, they were moving on the road and thus blocked the traffic flow across the border crossing. There were no physical contacts, no incidents - said Sanela Dujkovic, spokeswoman for the Border Police of BiH, for Klix.ba.

Due to the gathering of migrants, the suspension of traffic at the border crossing Velika Kladusa - Maljevac is currently in force, IC BIHAMK announced.


Bosnian police stopped around 300-400 migrants, among which there were children, from entering Croatia, and then the migrants lit a fire and they set up improvised tents.

Migrants want to enter Croatia and to continue west, to other EU members, according to the US agency.
