Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina
War veterans have blocked roads in various parts of Bosnia-Herzegovina to demand additional benefits.
Reports said the veterans of Bosnia's 1992-95 war peacefully ended their last blockades in the country's Muslim-Croat Federation on the morning of March 1.
The protest that began on February 28 had left thousands of people trapped in their vehicles in freezing temperatures.
Military exercises with the participation of NATO's A-10 aircraft squadrons are being planned in Bosnia and Herzegovina's (BiH) Serb Republic (Republika Srpska) in 2019. That's according to a report by "Dnevnik," a Sarajevo-based website, referencing official documents of the Ministry of Defense of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Bosnian Serb President Milorad Dodik said on Thursday evening that plans are underway to mark the disputed Day of Republika Srpska on January 9, even though the state Constitutional Court declared the holiday unconstitutional.
Dodik also said that members of the Bosnian armed forces would not be allowed to participate.
Almost a year since Bosnia and Serbia agreed to build a highway linking their capitals, Bosnia's two entities remain in a deadlock over the route.
Currently the trip between Sarajevo and Belgrade takes some five hours by car.
The fast road is expected to cut travel time drastically and provide a link between the two countries, both physically and symbolically.
