Serbia President Condemns Attack on PM

Serbian president Tomislav Nikolic has condemned the Saturday attack on his country’s prime minister at a ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre. Prime minister Aleksander Vucic went up before an angry Bosnian crowd that threw bottles, rocks and chased him out of the ceremony. Nikolic likened the attack to a “lynching attempt” and warned enemies against drawing Serbia into “new quarrels.” “No one should remain indifferent towards the savagery of that incident, which recalls those of 1992,” when Bosnia’s 1992-1995 civil war began, Nikolic said in a statement. 8,000 Muslim boys and men were murdered during the inter-ethnic war.
