Migrants in Bosnia Risk All on Winning Border ‘Game’

Migrants and refugees in Bosnia liken their attempts to cross the border into EU-member Croatia to a ‘game’ – in which victory means a new start in the West.

Twenty-eight-year-old Mohasinne from Morocco “gamed” the border more than a hundred times before he finally succeeded.

BIRN met him together with two of his friends from Algeria in Velika Kladusa, the farthest north-western town in Bosnia, just before they finally crossed into Croatia.

Their end goal was just some 10 kilometres away from the place where we spoke – but that distance is much longer and harder when you have to try to cross the same frontier again and again.
