In Banja Luka a landmark trial has been launched by the Bosnia's Islamic Community over compensation for more than 3000 buildings, among which many historical monuments, destroyed or damaged in the 1990s war. Hoped for are compensations "in excess of 60 million euro" and the punishment of individuals responsible. The suit had been filed already in 2000, but the first hearing was held only last year, after the country's constitutional court had ordered the process to start. Read a more detailed report here.
