Followers of the World War II Serbian Chetnik Movement and Bosnian Serb war veterans attacked two television crews during an event marking the 70th anniversary of the arrest of Chetnik leader Draza Mihailovic in the Drina river town of Visegrad, eastern Bosnia, on Sunday.

After filming members of the Chetnik Ravna Gora Movement lining up in central Visegrad, a Bosnian FTV crew went to the commemoration venue where they were approached by one of the Chetniks and taken by force to their leader. They were ordered to leave immediately, which they did for their own safety, FTV editor Elma Kazagic said.

 A crew from the regional N1 television channel fared worse. After they were ordered to show their ID cards, one of the Chetniks lunged at the cameraman and started hitting him on the head with the camera. When his reporter colleague asked the man to stop beating him, the man grabbed her microphone and started hitting her on the head with it. The reporters were also threatened by another man and a woman.

Unidentified persons broke up the incident and reported it to the police. A few hours later the police identified and detained the man who attacked the N1 crew.
