Reporting from Sarajevo

Vildana Selimbegovic recalls her baptism into the world of war reporting in an interview with Transitions Online today. She talks about reporting in Sarajevo, present day threats to journalists in Bosnia and the future for the country,

“My university professors used to tell us, ‘Do you really think that you can easily become a war reporter? That is something you must earn,’ ” Selimbegovic says. “Well, we became war reporters undeservedly…. I often say that I wasn’t objective. I wasn’t in a situation to be objective; I was unable to go ask the other side.” link
