Bridge over troubled waters

Until the Bosnian war of 1992-95, Mostar was probably the most ethnically integrated city in all of former Yugoslavia. Today, more than a decade after the Dayton Peace Accords quelled the violence, Mostar is divided, with Croats and Muslim Bosniaks living on either side of the restored bridge, which reopened in 2004.

The cross was built deliberately to provoke the Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims) This was from where they shelled the city

These lads (leaves) jumped off the bridge when they were offered enough money
