Bright, Shiny and New

I'm late today for the daily roundup of Bosnian/Balkan news. But that is what I get for not getting to my computer until 11:30 at night.

Yesterday the Dutchbat III Battalion who were stationed in Srebrenica in 1995; yes that Srebrenica, recieved some pretty medals in honor of their... well, I'm not exactly sure what was being honored...

First to accept the medal was Commander Thom Karremans. However, I have feeling that this photo will live much longer in public consciousness that the former.

There is no word on exactly how many of the Dutchbat troops accepted the medal, Yahoo news only said that "some" of the troops were on hand for the ceremony.
