      2004.11.01 AFP:
      Serbian Church in Bosnia decorates hospital for saving wounded priest

      SARAJEVO (AFP) Nov 01, 2004

      The Serbian Orthodox Church in Bosnia presented a medal of honour Monday to
      a hospital in the Muslim-Croat part of the country which saved a Serb
      priest who had been wounded by NATO peacekeepers.

      The medal given to the hospital in the northern town of Tuzla is the
      highest decoration of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Bosnia, the Fena news
      agency reported.

      Orthodox priest Jeremija Starovlah and his son Aleksandar were seriously
      wounded in April in a NATO swoop on their home during an operation to
      capture war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic.

      The political leader of the Bosnian Serbs during the former Yugoslav
      republic's 1992-1995 conflict has been charged with crimes including
      genocide, but he remains at large despite the NATO-led manhunt.

      Post-war Bosnia was split into two semi-independent entities -- the Serbs'
      Republika Srpska and the Muslim-Croat Federation.
