Mayors and councilors from Bosnian border towns staged a rare protest in the capital on Thursday, demanding the government do more to help them handle thousands of migrants camped out near their towns and cities.The large numbers of migrants who came into Europe in 2015 largely bypassed Bosnia. Numbers are down across the continent, but more than 9,000 people from Asia and North Africa have come into the Balkan nation this year, including 3,000 over the past month, say Bosnian officials and the U.N. refugee agency."Last time they took away my phone and all the money and I will have to stay here for some time now," the 20-year-old told Reuters. He said he had arrived in Bosnia after a four-year journey through Turkey, Bulgaria and Serbia.
