Umer Attal, a migrant from Afghanistan, is currently in the northwestern town of Velika Kladusa and he revealed the content of his backpack, which he packed for another attempt to cross the Croatian border, to Pixsell photographer Armin Durgut.

Attal has been travelling for the past three years and is trying to get to France.

He said that what can be seen in the images below is what migrants usually carry in their backpacks when trying to cross borders, adding that those who have a bit more money will also carry a sleeping bag and more clothes.

Since the beginning of 2018, the number of migrants passing through Bosnia has drastically increased. The country became a significant transit point for the thousands of migrants after numerous surrounding countries closed their borders.

The migrants aim to reach EU countries through Bosnia and Croatia. Croatian border police, however, often turns them away from the border and back into Bosnia.

The northwestern Una-Sana Canton (USK), and near Croatia’s border, is affected the most by the situation.
