‘Animals living better than us!’ | Migrants on hunger strike over dire conditions at camp in Bosnia

RT published this video item, entitled “‘Animals living better than us!’ | Migrants on hunger strike over dire conditions at camp in Bosnia” – below is their description.

Migrants and refugees stranded at the Lipa camp near Bihac are lamenting the dire winter situation at the site. Harsh living conditions have prompted many to start a hunger strike, according to one camp member and some media reports. Around 1,000 migrants are reportedly stranded in the area after a fire partially destroyed the site. The Bosnia and Herzegovina army has set up tents near the camp, but those tents are still not in use.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina, sometimes called Bosnia–Herzegovina and often known informally as Bosnia, is a country in South and Southeast Europe, located within the Balkans. Sarajevo is the capital and largest city.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina is bordered by Serbia to the east, Montenegro to the southeast, and Croatia to the north and southwest. It is not entirely landlocked; to the south it has a narrow coast on the Adriatic Sea, which is about 20 kilometres (12 miles) long and surrounds the town of Neum.

    The inland Bosnia region has a moderate continental climate, with hot summers and cold, snowy winters. In the central and eastern interior of the country the geography is mountainous, in the northwest moderately hilly, and in the northeast predominantly flatland. The smaller southern region, Herzegovina, has a Mediterranean climate and mostly mountainous topography.
