Patrolling The Croatian Border

Patrolling The Croatian Border

Croatia became the European Union's 28th member on July 1 and its roughly 1,400 km of land border with non-EU neighbours Bosnia, Serbia and Montenegro will now become the bloc's new external frontier. Croatia lies on the notorious Balkan smuggling route, used for transporting illegal migrants and drugs from the Middle East and Africa into western Europe, and its border police have modernised their equipment to include thermal vision cameras and infrared binoculars to improve control.
