Divided Sarajevo city strives to reintegrate

The prospect of hosting the 2017 European Olympic Youth Festival has prompted talk about how to work together.

    In four years both parts of the divided city of Sarajevo will be hosting the European Olympic Youth Festival.

    Bosnia and Hercegovina comprises two parts -  the Muslim-Croat Federation, with Sarajevo its capital, and the mainly Serb Republika Srpska, whose official capital is East Sarajevo.

    Both city administrations say they hope co-operating over sports can have wider implications.

    At the moment one of the main things the two sides share is scars of the civil war.
