Bosnian Serbs celebrate ‘national holiday’ angering Muslims

Bosnian Serbs begin celebrations of the “national holiday” of their entity, Republika Srpska, defying a 2016 legal ban and angering Bosnian Muslims who view it as a provocation. Muslims in Bosnia oppose the event as it 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.
