Some 300 migrants have arrived at former barracks near Sarajevo on Wednesday morning after they left the infamous Vucjak camp in Bosnia's northwest.

According to N1's Slavisa Starcevic, reporting from the site, the rest of migrants will be temporarily accommodated in the nearby Usivak camp until all facilities in Blazuj are prepared to accept the migrants.

Peter Van der Auweraert, Head of the International Organisation for Migrations (IOM) Mission in Bosnia, earlier said that the facilities are likely to be prepared and equipped within three to four weeks.

After months they spent in improvised tent-camp Vucjak near the northwestern town Bihac, migrants were relocated from the site to spend the winter months in the Blazuj barracks.

Council of Europe's Human Rights Commissioner Dunja Mijatovic who visited Vucjak last week said the place was a shame for the country due to its inadequate conditions and must be immediately closed.
