Police in Croatia today said 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 the group who entered the country illegally were found after a tip from locals.
An investigation about the deaths is being conducted, the police said without specifying any of the migrants' nationalities.
Local media said 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.
