Croatia to Bosnia border crossing - Bosnia and Herzegovina Forum
Crossing a multitude of checkpoints, battlegrounds, and destroyed villages, Justin encounters civilians, paramilitary groups, expatriate journalists, aid workers, and UN peacekeeping personnel on his journeys through the region. Spawned by ignorance and indignity, these borders intersect the countryside leaving pockets of isolated villages whose neighbors have been displaced by ethnic and religious divisions.
Obstacles and tangled bureaucracies make the challenge of delivering vital humanitarian relief almost insurmountable, as different groups of refugees block the main routes into relief areas, and as forces within fight each other.
