Tarik Bijelic was killed by an anti-personnel mine while he was out collecting firewood with his father, who is now being treated in hospital in Sarajevo for serious shrapnel wounds, reported on euronews.com.

The mother of the dead boy, Rukija Bijelic told how she heard a loud explosion, and that eventually she saw her husband, a former Bosnian soldier, carrying the boy in his arms. She said neighbours took them to hospital, but the youngster was already dead.
