Bosnian War - Genocide: History, Key Dates
In 1918, Bosnia-Herzegovina joined with other socialist nations to form Yugoslavia. By the early 1990s, that group fell apart, and countries like Croatia, Slovenia and Macedonia became independent. Unfortunately, they paid for their independence with war, and Bosnia was no exception. A fierce battle between clashing ethnic groups raged between 1992 and 1995: Serb nationalists within Bosnia fought for land and the extermination of the Muslim population. This conflict ultimately resulted in the division of the country, and its effects are still felt today. In this video, WatchMojo.com looks back at the events that led to the Bosnian War, as well as some of the key dates and events that occurred during this conflict.
