Bosnia Legislature

Audio for this story from All Things Considered is not available.

The BBC's Karen Coleman reports from Sarajevo that a government has been approved for Bosnia-Hercegovina. The House of Representatives, made up of Serbs, Croats and Muslims, finally met this morning, more than three months since elections were held. Although it means that Serbs, Muslims and Croats will be working together, the real power in the country still resides in the Bosnian Serb Republic and the Muslim-Croat Federation.
