Refugee Center Fire in Bosnia Leaves 29 Injured

ZAGREB A fire that broke out at a refugee center in western Bosnia on Saturday morning and was still burning has left 29 people injured, according public television station BHRT.

A regional interior ministry spokesperson said the injured, all of whom were migrants, were taken to the hospital.

The cause of the fire was not yet known, according to the same source.

Several people were seriously injured, according to medical sources cited by the Avaz newspaper.

Bosnian security agents estimate that no less than 6,000 people have entered the country illegally so far this year.

The majority of these people are in the west of the country, from where they hope to move onto Croatia, a member state of the European Union, and then Slovenia, which is in the Schengen area of free movement.

The office of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Bosnia and Herzegovina warned on Thursday of the serious situation in which thousands of migrants found themselves as they tried to reach western Europe.

The centers that exist offer insufficient lodgings and sanitation conditions, while thousands of migrants are sleeping outside, something that is leading to more deaths, according to the ICRC.
