Siege of Sarajevo: Dan Damon Looks Back

Monday, April 16, 2012

The 44-month siege of Sarajevo was the longest in modern history, and marked the beginning of the conflict in Bosnia. During the siege, more than 100,000 people were killed and around 2.2 million fled their homes. It has now been 20 years since the siege began. Dan Damon, host of the BBC's World Update, joins us from Sarajevo, Bosnia.
