On July 12th, 2017, five people from North Africa were beaten up by the Croatian police. The police found them in a small city close to Zagreb. There were four or five police officers, they asked them where they were from, how old they were and their names. They drove them to the northern border in a blue police van without windows. They stopped in the forest close to Sombor. At this time there were only two border police officers. One by one the people on the move were ordered out of the car and beaten with police batons.
