Explosion rocks polling station in Bosnian Serb Republic

A explosion rocked a polling station in the Bosnian Serb Republic early on Saturday morning, the Bosnian Serb news agency SRNA reported, quoting a spokesman for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

The blast shattered several windows of the polling station in the village of Kopaci, 50 kilometres to the northeast of Sarajevo, but did not delay the opening of the station.

All polling stations in the Bosnian Serb Republic were opened on time and apart from this incident there have been no problems, the OSCE spokesman said.
