A crowd throwing bottles and stones chased Serbia's prime minister from a ceremony in Bosnia on Saturday marking the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre, underscoring the depth of anger over Belgrade's continued denial of the crime as genocide.The scene marred a ceremony to commemorate the day that Srebrenica, designated a safe haven protected by Dutch United Nations peacekeepers, fell to Bosnian Serb forces in the closing months of the 1992-95 war.During the 1990s, Vucic was a disciple of the "Greater Serbia" ideology that fuelled much of the bloodshed that accompanied Yugoslavia's demise.He has since rebranded himself as pro-Western and his attendance on Saturday was intended to be symbolic of how far the region has come since wars that left at least 135,000 people dead, 100,000 of them in Bosnia.
