Serbian border patrol arrests three for smuggling 64 Afghans

The Serbian authorities have detained three men on suspicion of the attempted smuggling of 64 Afghan migrants, including women and infants, in the south east of the country near the border with Bulgaria, the Defence Ministry said on Tuesday. In July, Serbia deployed joint military and police patrols to its border as the flow of migrants did not stop, even after other Balkan countries closed their borders in March. Three men from the capital Belgrade were arrested near the southeastern town of Zajecar, some 10 kilometers (six miles) west of the Bulgarian border, as they boarded migrants onto a van and cars, the defense ministry said in a statement.
