Are ethnic divisions deepening once again in the Balkans?

Latest news

    The results of Sunday’s general election in Bosnia and Herzegovina are threatening to cause further instability in the Balkans, which was wrecked by war in the 1990s.

    Serb voters chose Milorad Dodik for one of the nation’s three presidents. He wants to split the country.

    His election is likely to heighten tensions with Bosniak Muslims and the Croats who want to stay united.
