Original Report

In the night between March 30 and 31, two individuals left from Bihac (BIH) with the aim of entering Croatia. Around 12 am, they were near the Croatian border, in the area around Bihac between the cities of Donji Vagana and Mala Peća. There, they spotted some officers along the road and reported hearing the sound of drones.

They decided to wait for them to pass. Around 4 am, they finally crossed the border to Croatia. Near Donji Vaganac (HRV), two Croatian officers described as wearing blue uniforms stopped them. The officers asked them if they had phones, money or weapons with them. They further did a body search and also searched their backpacks. Then they had to enter a car and were deported to Bosnia, near the city of Izazic.
