SARAJEVO (Reuters) - More than a quarter of Bosnia's 4 million people have been affected by the worst floods to hit the Balkans in over a century, Foreign Minister Zlatko Lagumdzija said on Monday.
He told a news conference that more than 100,000 houses and other buildings were no longer usable and that around 1 million people had been cut off from clean water supplies.
"The consequences of the flood are terrifying," Lagumdzija said.
