Bosnian Serbs build symbolic wall in Sarajevo

A group of Bosnian Serbs have built a wall across a road on the outskirts of Sarajevo in protest against last week's arrest of a Serb accused of killing a former Bosnian deputy prime minister.

The wall, which eyewitnesses say is about ten meters long and just under two meters high, went up on the road from Sarajevo to the Bosnian Serb suburb of Lukavica.

Bosnian radio quoted the protesters as saying the wall was designed to give symbolic protection from police intrusion.

On Friday, Goran Vasic, a Bosnian Serb, had been arrested by Bosnian officials on suspicion of killing the former Bosnian deputy prime minister, Hakija Turajlic, five years ago.
