BOSNIA — Parade: Bosnian Serbs march carrying a giant Serbian flag in Sarajevo, on Sunday. Amid Bosnia’s greatest political crisis since the end of its 1992-95 inter-ethnic war, the country’s Serbs celebrated an outlawed holiday on Sunday with a provocative parade showcasing armored vehicles, police helicopters, and law enforcement officers with rifles, marching in lockstep and singing a nationalist song. The Jan. 9 holiday commemorated the date in 1992 when Bosnian Serbs declared their own state in Bosnia, igniting the multi-ethnic country’s devastating, nearly 4-year-long war that became a byname for ethnic cleansing and genocide.
