Some 350 to 400 migrants, including women and children, gathered on Bosnia's north-eastern border crossing to Croatia, Bosnian Border Police spokesperson Sanela Dujkovic said on Wednesday.

A small incident occurred when police officers prevented two migrants from crossing into Croatia, but nobody was injured.

“The situation is becoming complicated due to the number of migrants, as this was first a group of only 70-80 migrants,” Dujkovic said of the crossing near Bosnia’s northeastern-most town of Velika Kladusa.

There have been no urgent medical interventions or major incidents until now, she said.

Another group of some 130 to 150 migrants who were found about a kilometre away from the Western Izacic border crossing was taken back to migrant centres in the Bosnian town of Bihac from where they departed a day earlier, Dujkovic said.

Croatian Interior Ministry earlier said that its police was committed to implementing the national and European laws and prevent any illegal crossings of their state border, which is also the external EU border.

“False information is being spread among the migrants currently on the territories of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, saying that Croatia will allow their arrival in its territory and their further transit toward Western European countries,” the ministry said.
