Refugees held in cages at Bosnian detention center – report

A three-year-old was spotted among a group of 12 Iraqi refugees locked inside cages at the Bosnian detention center. The two families of seven adults and five children attempted to cross the Bosnian border illegally from Klobuk, Montenegro, but were apprehended and locked inside the detention block, awaiting their deportation, ‘Are You Syrious’ pro-migrant charity organization claims.

The Bosnian border police were heavily criticized after ‘Are You Syrious’ group released footage which showed the conditions in which the migrants were held. However, they denied all claims of mistreating the refugees: “Bosnia-Herzegovina border police deny inhuman treatment of migrants in its facility at the Klobuk border crossing,” the force said in a statement. Nonetheless, more cases of refugee maltreatment at Bosnia’s southern borders are being reported.
