I CARE - - News - Internet Centre Anti Racism Europe 

24/8/2016- Police have arrested a member of a hunting party in Serbia
after a young Afghan migrant was shot dead in the woods near the

services, doctors could only establish the death of a 20-year old male

them to slip through their borders into neighbouring countries.
