    Bosnia Marks WWI Centenary

    The Bosnian city of Sarajevo marked the 100-year anniversary of the day an Austrian prince was murdered in the city, setting in motion the chain of events that led to World War One. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Hungarian throne, and his wife Sophie were assassinated in 1914 on the streets of Sarajevo by a 19-year-old Bosnian Serb named Gavrilo Princip.
