Assassin to get new memorial

The week's news at a glance.

Sarajevo

The city of Sarajevo will restore its memorial to Gavrilo Princip, the Serbian nationalist whose assassination of Austria’s Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914 ignited World War I. The memorial was in the form of footprints set in the sidewalk where Princip reportedly stood when he shot at the archduke’s passing car. The site was destroyed by Bosnian Serb shelling during the 1992–95 war. Supporters of restoring the footprints said Sarajevo should commemorate the event that made it famous across the world. Opponents questioned the wisdom of creating a memorial to a terrorist who killed not only the archduke and his pregnant wife, but sparked a war in which 10 million people perished.
