Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnia’s parliament is discussing the fate of dozens of former Islamic fighters who came to fight alongside Bosnian Muslims during the 1992-95 war and now face deportation. A government commission has revoked 500 citizenships out of 1,300 that had been awarded to foreigners during and after the war, a move seen as part of an anti-terrorism drive urged by the U.S. Most former fighters left Bosnia after “9/11.” But those who stayed, mostly because of family ties, say they are innocents whose lives have been destroyed by political directives from abroad.
