Bosnian Serbs push for more autonomy after attack

The Associated Press

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) A day after an attack on a police station, the Bosnian Serb leader who is pushing for independence for the Serb region of Bosnia says the country's central institutions are "useless" and Bosnian Serbs should form their own intelligence service.

Milorad Dodik said Tuesday that Bosnian Serbs have the right to "defend themselves." On Monday, a Bosnian Muslim gunman killed a policeman and wounded two after he stormed into a police station in the northeastern town of Zvornik, on the border with Serbia, shouting "Allahu akbar," Arabic for "God is great."

The attack instantly raised tensions in Bosnia, still fragile 20 years after the end of the war between its Christian Orthodox Serbs, Muslim Bosnians and Catholic Croats that left 100,000 people dead and divided the country along ethnic lines.
