Divers Compete In Annual Mostar Bridge Jump

Divers from several countries took part in the 448th annual competition plunging some 24 meters from the Stari Most, or Old Bridge, in the Bosnian city of Mostar. One of the country's most recognizable landmarks, the 16th-century bridge over the Neretva River stood for 427 years before it was destroyed during the Bosnian war in November 1993. The diving contest resumed after the bridge was rebuilt 10 years ago. This year, local resident Lorens Listo won competition for the eighth time. (Mirsad Behram, RFE/RL's Balkan Service)
