Bosnian Serb fans of Yugoslavia's national basketball team rioted against Muslims throughout Republika Srpska, after the team won a world championship in Indianapolis. There were pogroms "in nearly all towns and villages in the RS where a significant number of [Muslim refugees returning to their homes are] residing," according to a media roundup from the High Representative's office. Attacks took place Kozarac, Brcko, Zvornik and Bijeljina, among other sites. The Yugoslav team was congratulated by Bosnian Serb wartime leader and indicted war criminal Radovan Karadzic, who is accused of masterminding the murder and torture of tens of thousands of people. "The players are expected to accept the ex-leader's well-wishes," Ananova reported at http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_668649.html?menu=news.quirkies .
