SARAJEVO: A group of migrants were injured near Bosnia’s border with Croatia and are receiving medical care, local media and police said Wednesday, without elaborating on the nature of the incident, reports AFP.

Some 5,000 migrants are camped out in northwest Bosnia, hoping to continue westward and enter EU member state Croatia.

While many eventually manage to slip through, migrants are also routinely pushed back by police, sometimes violently, according to watchdogs.

Regional broadcaster N1 reported that 18 migrants sustained injuries and were admitted to a medical clinic Tuesday night.
