Winter brings more misery for migrants in Bosnia

RT, 09 Jan 2021
A fresh spate of snowy and very cold winter weather on Friday has brought more misery for hundreds of migrants who have been stuck for days in a burnt out camp in northwest Bosnia waiting for heating and other facilities.
The migrants at the Lipa camp site were trying to warm up around fires while caught in a blizzard on Friday as authorities scrambled to finish setting up some 20 military tents meant to accommodate them.
Some migrants didn't even wear socks or winter jackets as they waited to receive food parcels from aid groups.
"(Since) many days ago, I did not take a shower, we do not have electricity," said Mohammad Afsal, from Pakistan. "Please stand with us and help us, we are in a very, very bad condition!"
Bosnia has faced international criticism for leaving some 1,000 migrants without shelter after a fire engulfed the squalid Lipa refugee camp near its northwest border with Croatia last month.
