Old Bridge of Mostar (Stari Most). Destroyed by the Croat Defence Council during the Bosnian War (1992-1995). It was reconstructed in 2004, however tens of thousands of innocent Bosnians killed by Serbian and Croatian forces remain dead. European countries who let the tragedy go on for 3 years in the middle of Europe, did almost nothing to stop the bloodshed until the NATO intervention.
