More than 1 milion people have returned to their homes in Bosnia and Herzegovina after fleeing the conflict of 1992-95, the United Nations refugee agency said yesterday.

Nearly half returned to areas where they are a minority, including many of the places worst hit by the conflict.

Under the terms of the 1995 Dayton peace agreement, Bosnia, with a population of nearly 4m, is divided into a Muslim-Croat entity and the Serb-controlled Republika Srpska.

Another half a million people are still waiting to return home, including 313,000 displaced within Bosnia and about 100,000 refugees in neighbouring countries.

That must have been very scary for the returnees. It shows how courageous they are. Cudos to them.
