GOVT OFFICIAL: HUNGARY TO SEND DISINFECTANTS TO BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA

 

Hungary’s government is sending disinfectants to the Bisce (Bihács) region in Bosnia-Herzegovina, near the Croatian border, that is especially hard-hit by illegal migration, a government official said on Wednesday. Tristan Azbej, the state secretary for aiding persecuted Christians and the coordinator of the Hungary Helps scheme, said the aid will be sent to 29 public institutions. The region has seen 10,000 arrivals in the past year, “which brought about a deterioration of public safety and pollution while a large part of the citizens, who used to live from tourism, lost their jobs,” he said. The migrants are squatting in buildings where an epidemic is spreading, he insisted.
