The Bosnian Muslim Rebuilding A Medieval Christian Church

A Bosnian Muslim businessman has discovered what are believed to be the remains of a 13th-century Franciscan church in his backyard -- and now intends to have it rebuilt. Husein Smajic stumbled across what appear to be the foundations and other relics of the church while digging an artificial lake. He says the project will show that coexistence of Muslims and Christians in Bosnia is indeed possible. (RFE/RL’s Balkan Service)
