SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Two people were killed and 18 others were hurt in a clash among migrants in the northwestern part of the country, Bosnian police said Thursday.

The violence took place late Wednesday in the northwestern town of Bihac, police said. A police patrol came to the scene following a call from a Bihac resident. The injured migrants, including 10 seriously, have been transferred to a local hospital.

It wasn’t immediately clear what sparked the clashes, but the migrants’ long journeys and uncertain future often lead to tensions among them.
