ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Police in Croatia say they have intercepted a group of 10 migrants in a dense forest, and another two who had apparently died en route.

Police in the central town of Karlovac said Sunday the group who entered the country illegally were found after a tip from locals. Police say they have opened an investigation about the deaths, and did not specify any of the migrants’ nationalities.

Local media say they likely were killed in a landslide in a rugged terrain after they crossed from neighboring Bosnia.

Several thousand migrants remain stuck in Bosnia as they aim to reach the wealthy nations in Western Europe. Migrants often first try to cross to European Union member Croatia.
