  • Bosnia: Migrants leave burned down Lipa camp in freezing cold

    Several hundred migrants leave a camp in northwestern Bosnia, near the Croatian and the European Union border. The "Lipa" camp housed more than 1,300 people, mostly Pakistanis and Afghans crossing through Bosnia on their way to Western Europe, and was burned down on December 22 as the International Organization for Migration (IOM) announced its withdrawal over conditions it says are not suitable for winter. Some 8,000 migrants from Asia, Africa and the Middle East are currently in Bosnia, of which about 3,000 have no shelter, according to the IOM.
