Bosnian Serb declares victory in Srebrenica

Mladen Grujicic, speaks with AFP on September 28, 2016 in SrebrenicaThe Bosnian town of Srebrenica, known for the wartime massacre of 8,000 Muslims by Serb forces, looked set to get its first Serb mayor in 17 years after elections on Sunday. Based on a preliminary vote count in Srebrenica, 34-year-old Mladen Grujicic declared victory over his Muslim opponent and said people had shown “they want changes”. Srebrenica today is a microcosm of Bosnia, with Muslims and Serbs living side by side but by no means together — still distrustful more than two decades after Bosnia’s 1992-1995 war, which claimed 100,000 lives and displaced two million people.
