Two Migrants Found Dead In Croatian Forest
Zagreb, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 13th Aug, 2018 ) :Two migrants thought to have sneaked into EU member Croatia from neighbouring Bosnia were found dead Sunday in a forest some 90 kilometres (55 miles) from the border, Croatian police said.
Documents found at the scene indicated that they were both Syrians, aged 24, the report added.
The police did not provide further details, saying only that an investigation was under way.
Bosnian authorities estimate that some 4,000 migrants and refugees are currently in Bosnia, mainly in the towns of Bihac and Velika Kladusa, both near the Croatian border, hoping to enter the European Union along the so-called "Balkans Route".
Many have been camping out in parks or abandoned buildings, while the Red Cross and local volunteers have been providing meals and other basic services.
According to a tally by the humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders, more than 80 migrants have died -- mainly by drowning, freezing to death or in road accidents -- since the start of the year along the Balkans Route originating in Turkey.
