In 1992, shooting broke out in the Bosnian capital, triggering the first war in Europe since 1945. In the years that followed, more than 11,000 people were killed in the ethnically diverse city.
Bosnian war veterans took to the streets of Sarajevo to express their support to Bosniak ex-general Atif Dudakovic. Prosecutors suspect Dudakovic of war crimes against Serbs, but also Bosniaks loyal to other leaders.
Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan is set to appear at a large rally in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Bosniak leaders are eager to welcome the strongman, who portrays himself as the protector of Balkan Muslims.
Former General Atif Dudakovic has been arrested in connection with war crimes allegedly committed during the 1992-1995 Bosnian War. He has previously denied the charges, calling them politically motivated.
