Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Ministry of Security requested the assistance of the international EUFOR mission early Saturday in the search for the two missing tourists.

A helicopter, piloted by Hungarians and with Dutch and Italian soldiers on board, was sent by the Hungarian commander of the European Union Force in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Major General Laszlo Sticz, for the search and rescue operation. The tourists were found on a summit, evacuated and brought to a hospital in Sarajevo.

Defence Minister Kristof Szalay-Bobrovniczky congratulated the Hungarian soldiers and military doctors who were involved in the operation in a message on Facebook later on Saturday.
