Photo journalist Tom Stoddart took pictures of the people on the streets of Sarajevo in the middle of the 90s, when the city was under the siege. Now the journalist has returned to photograph the same persons and the changes that the place has undergone since the siege was lifted.

Read about their history and what exactly happened. Muslim immigrants practically took their country, the tension was so strong that there would be either a war or massacre of christians. So they striked first to get their country back. This is sad the same is happening right now in UK, France and even in USA, but on smaller scale.

Muslim immigrants?
As a percentage, Muslim immigrants are pretty low. Most Bosniaks converted by the sword, as was customary by Ottoman rule. If you didn't convert, life was much harder including much higher taxes.
There are a group of Muslim immigrates that we should all be very afraid of who came to Sarajevo in the 90's. They were the fighters of the 7th Muslim Brigade, who still have ties to al Qaeda. There are still hundreds living within BH.
Up until the Bosnian war, Bosniaks only comprised 35 to 40% of the population. Now they are a majority of the city, mainly because over a 100,000 Orthodox Christians and Catholics moved away from Sarajevo. This is a typical evacuation that happens when any Muslim rule happens to a multicultural city.
