SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina – The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that Bosnia is violating human rights by not letting a Muslim Bosniak residing in the Serb part of the country run for president. Bosnia has three months to appeal.

The settlement ending the 1992-95 war carved the country into two regions — a Serb region and one shared by the Bosniaks and Croats. The county's presidency must consist of a Serb from the Serb region and a Bosniak and Croat from the other.
