President booted

The week's news at a glance.

Sarajevo, Bosnia

The international high representative for Bosnia fired the Croatian member of Bosnia’s three-person presidency this week, a move that underscored the limits on the country’s sovereignty. The Croatian leader, Dragan Covic, had been accused of corruption but refused to resign. As high representative, Paddy Ashdown, a British peer, has broad powers to intervene in the government when the Serbs, Croats, and Bosniaks, who are trying to share power, cannot agree. Bosnia has had a large international presence since the Yugoslav civil war ended in 1995. Ten years later, the country still hosts an E.U. peacekeeping force, and nearly a million displaced persons have yet to return home.
