Croatian Police Officers Arrested for Abusing Afghan Asylum Seeker

Two Croatian police officers were arrested for beating an Afghan asylum seeker who had crossed over from Bosnia, reports The Guardian.

The Afghan victims had been taken to the Slunj police station on June 11, on suspicion of entering illegally from Bosnia.

The officers were removed from service and are pending disciplinary actions, as the UN urged the Croatian government to investigate reports of excessive use of force against migrants.

One of the officer faces charges of bodily harm and the other for failing to report the crime.
