SARAJEVO — The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency has sent a second aid convoy to regions of Bosnia and Herzegovina that have been badly affected by floods.

The agency previously sent aid to the town of Maglaj in the Zenica-Doboj canton.

Now aid packs composed of 32,000 cans of tinned food, water, fuel and nappies are heading to the cities Zeljezno Polje, Topcic-Polje and Doboj.

In addition two Turkish organizations, the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation and Deniz Feneri Association are also to send humanitarian aid to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

At least 19 people have drowned after heavy rainfall triggered floods in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia, officials said, adding that they expect the death toll to rise.
