Bosnia’s Salakovac reception center offers migrants a moment of respite
For the past few months, dozens of migrants a day have been streaming into Bosnia, a small impoverished country in the Balkans. The refugees and migrants are crossing Bosnia with the aim of reaching Croatia, the next step on their journey to the European Union. Bosnia says it is overwhelmed and unprepared to deal with this large influx of people, while NGOs say they fear the country is on the brink of a “humanitarian crisis”. InfoMigrants went to the Salakovac reception centre, located in the mountains south of Sarajevo.
