[ From the Media ]

SEtimes reports that "a chink" (a crack?) has appeared on Mostar's Stari Most (Old Bridge). Previously, UNESCO had forced Bosnian authorities to stop the construction of a hotel near the structure by threatening the country with the removal of the bridge from the World Heritage List. More positive from another World Heritage location in SEE: Greece has returned to Albania two antique statues that were stolen from the museum at Butrint in 1991.(*)
