Protests in Croatia over bilingual signs

    More than 20,000 people in the eastern Croatian town of Vukovar have protested against plans to introduce bilingual street signs.

    Under Croatian law, the town's signs should be in both Croatian and Serbian. But as Shamim Chowdhury reports, language is a hugely sensitive issue in Vukovar, because of its recent history.
