    Bosnian burghers lined up 11,541 red chairs through the streets of Sarajevo on Friday, one for each victim of the war, as the city marked the 20th anniversary of the start of the war. Sarajevo mayor Alija Behmen said the chairs symbolize the “line of blood that ran through the streets on April 6, 1992 until 1995.” Empty chairs stretched for 800 meters, with smaller chairs representing the more than 600 children killed. On the 20th anniversary of the Serbian siege—resulting in one of the worst atrocities in Europe since World War II—Bosnia remains scarred and deeply divided.
