“Former veterans of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH) army have been blocking the highway towards the capital Sarajevo, causing a traffic collapse here on Wednesday evening, local media reported.

Some 5 000 former veterans have blocked the Tuzla loop, a city some 120 kilometres northeast of capital Sarajevo and Sarajevo loop on Wednesday morning and will remain there until the requests submitted to the Parliament of the Federation of BiH are fulfilled. Protestors are asking for the abolishment of veteran organizations that are not in accordance with a BiH law and the establishment of the accurate veterans register, local media said.” (Sarajevo Times)
