Thousands of migrants are stranded in Bosnia and Herzegovina on the border with Croatia. As the winter closes in, the external border of the European Union is inching towards a humanitarian emergency. Around 21,000 migrants have taken this route seeking safe refuge in the EU.
For two years the Bosnian town of Velika Kladuša has been a bottleneck for migrants - trying to get into the EU. It’s an area where locals throughout history have themselves left for a better life elsewhere. One Bosnian war veteran has turned his café into a makeshift soup kitchen for those in need.
