Six people were arrested in Serbia and two in Bosnia-Herzegovina, according to media reports. The suspects are accused of enabling 203 migrants to travel through Serbian territory and to illegally cross the Bosnian border between September and November in order to reach western Europe. The alleged human traffickers asked each migrant to pay between €110 and €130 for the trip, reports said.
