Several hundred people took part in an anti-migrant rally in the Sarajevo suburb of Ilidža on Wednesday, November 18. The rally was sparked by a fight the night before allegedly involving migrants that resulted in the death of one local man and the wounding of two others. The demonstrators demanded greater security and better control over the movement of migrants in Sarajevo canton.
Further unrest over the issue is likely over the coming days. Associated rallies are likely to be accompanied by a heightened security presence and localized disruptions to transport.
Those in Ilidža are advised to monitor the situation, avoid any large gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
