Migrants claim violence while pushed back from Croatia

In this photo taken Thursday, Aug. 24, 2017, asylum seekers take a break by the side of a road in Sid, some 90 kilometers (55 miles) northwest of Belgrade, Serbia. There is evidence that Croatian police have for months been forcing asylum seekers back across the border from Serbia in some cases using violence, taking their money and breaking their mobile phones, without giving them an opportunity to lodge claims for protection. Croatia denies the accusations. (AP Photo/Marko Drobnjakovic)
