- Story Text: Bosnian leaders laid wreaths and flowers in Sarajevo on Saturday (November 25) to mark the anniversary of the 1943 recognition of the state of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Bosnia quietly marked its national day with a low-key ceremony at which President Alia Izetbegovic laid yellow lilies at a memorial to the defenders of Sarajevo.
Veterans of World War Two and the Balkan conflict, only recently halted by a peace accord, then held a minute of silence for those who died in the fighting.
Some 10,000 people were killed during the 3-1/2 year siege of the Bosnian capital, an unknown but high number of them soldiers.
Many of them have been interred at Kovaci, the "martyr's cemetery," an old Turkish burial ground on a hillside near the city centre.
Later, at a Bosnian government army building, Bosnian government leaders listened to a rendition of Bosnia's new national anthem, composed after the recent cessation of hostilities.
