Croatian Police Deny Using Violence against Migrants

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Croatian police have denied reports that the European Union nation's border guards have been using violence against migrants attempting to enter from neighboring Bosnia.

Police told The Associated Press on Monday that they "have not recorded" such incidents along Croatia's border with Bosnia and other neighbors.

The response comes after the Red Cross last week warned it has received reports that dozens of people who tried to cross the border from Bosnia were being treated daily for injuries. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies also have said some migrants recounted being beaten by Croatian border guards, but that IFRC could not verify the accounts.

IFRC says more than 8,000 people have entered Bosnia this year while trying to reach Western Europe through the Balkans.
