Migrants in Bosnia face dire cold after camp burns down

Hundreds of migrants stranded in northwestern Bosnia have spent a fourth night in freezing temperatures and squalid conditions, after the camp that housed them burned down.

The UN and other international aid groups are urgently appealing to the authorities in Bosnia-Herzegovina to provide alternative shelter for the migrants.

They say people could die if they don’t act soon.

They were already living in misery. Then things got worse. Freezing temperatures, no heat in a big tent, and just plastic sheeting for a roof – One that threatens to cave in from snow piling up on top.

Some people here say they aren’t even being regularly fed.
