Asylum Seekers Live Rough In Serbia

Serbia has become a magnet for asylum seekers from Africa and the Middle East, but the country's two refugee camps are now fully occupied and closed off to new arrivals. With nowhere to go, many of the asylum seekers have been pushed out into the forest to live in tents and makeshift shelters -- but without basic amenities like heat and power. As winter arrives in Europe, RFE/RL correspondent Vesna Andjic visited one of the forest camps near the village of Bogovadja, 70 kilometers from Belgrade. (Text by Reuters)
