Gornja Maoca, Bosnia and Herzegovina
An entrance to the Bosnian village of Gornja Maoca decorated with Islamic State signs, February 4, 2015. Police in Bosnia arrested several people in 2014 on suspicion of fighting alongside Islamist militants in Syria and Iraq or recruiting and raising money for such groups. Bosnia also introduced jail terms of up to 10 years for Bosnians who fight or recruit for groups abroad such as Islamic State. Hundreds are thought to have joined the wars in Syria and Iraq, along with other Muslims from across the Balkans. Most Bosnian Muslims, who account for around 45 percent of the population and are known as Bosniaks, are secular or practice a moderate form of Islam. More radical strains have taken root since Bosnia's 1992-95 war, fueled in part by poverty and unemployment. REUTERS/Dado Ruvic (BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - Tags: CIVIL UNREST POLITICS)
