Bosnian Serbs parade for ‘national holiday’, angering Muslims

By France24, January 9, 2018:

Thousands of Bosnian Serbs cheered parading security forces in celebration of the “national holiday” of their entity, Republika Srpska, on Wednesday, despite a legal ban and objections of Bosnian Muslims who view it as a provocation.

The event marks the creation of a “Serb republic” in Bosnia on January 9, 1992, three months ahead of an ethnic war that claimed 100,000 lives and displaced more than two million people.

Security forces and armoured vehicles filed through the northern town of Banja Luka, capital of the Bosnian Serb-run entity on Wednesday for the event, which is opposed by Muslims in Bosnia.

Post-war Bosnia is divided along ethnic lines into two semi-independent entities — Republika Srpska and the Muslim-Croat Federation.

They are linked by a loose central government and tripartite presidency that includes representatives of three major communities.

Republika Srpska is predominantly made up of Orthodox Christian Serbs who account for a third of Bosnia’s 3.5 million inhabitants.

Muslims comprise half the country’s population, while Catholic Croats are the third major ethnic group, representing 15 percent of the total.
