“Bosnian police used pepper spray on Wednesday to disperse hundreds of war veterans protesting in Sarajevo to demand a law be adopted granting them more benefits.

Special police forces, carrying helmets and shields, confronted the veterans of the 1990s Bosnian war who blocked the city center during a protest walk.

Some protesters said they were hit by rubber bullets and others beaten with batons.
Police said four officers were injured and two protesters detained before the crowd dispersed. Local media reported that dozens of veterans were sickened by the spray and given medical assistance.” (Reuters)
