Bosnia, one of Europe's poorest countries, is so ill-equipped to cope with a surging influx of refugees that aid workers here fear the tiny nation could be on the brink of a humanitarian crisis.One aid worker, who asked not to be named, said the EU cash could come too late to avoid a humanitarian crisis.According to Peter Van Der Auweraert, head of the Bosnian mission of the International Organization for Migrations, around 2,500 migrants were currently in Bosnia, which meant that many managed to cross into the EU.Another Pakistani, 27-year-old Hamid, said he had tried three times to reach the EU, but failed.A migrant reception center has been set up near Mostar in the south of the country.But the migrants are reluctant to go there because it is too far off their route for the EU.
