Independence Day marked in part of Muslim-Croat part of Bosnia

The Muslim-Croat Federation entity of Bosnia-Herzegovina is today marking Independence Day, a holiday in that part of Bosnia.

On March 1, 1992, 64 percent of those who took part in a referendum in then Yugoslav republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina voted in favor of making it “an independent state of all its citizens and equal nations”. The referendum was held in the last stages of the breakup of the former Yugoslavia.

Muslim and Croat members of Bosnia’s three-member presidency Bakir Izetbegović and Željko Komšić will take part in today’s ceremonies in Sarajevo.
