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.
It was one of the worst atrocities of the Bosnian war. In August 1992, Bosnian Serb forces lined up Muslim prisoners on the edge of a cliff and opened fire. More than 20 years on, the victims are being laid to rest.
Bosnian authorities say Recep Tayyip Erdogan's security detail has scuffled with border police at Sarajevo's airport. The guards escorting the Turkish leader reportedly refused to hand over their guns.
The Dutch Supreme Court upheld a ruling that Dutch UN peacekeepers had failed to protect 350 people in Bosnia in 1995. The judges found, however, that the Dutch government was only 10% liable for the atrocity.
Officials near Bosnia's border with Croatia feel abandoned by the federal government and the international community. With shelters bursting at the seams with people trapped in limbo, they're taking drastic measures.
