Bosnian Serb leader summoned for questioning over referendum


SARAJEVO (Reuters) - Bosnia's chief prosecutor has summoned the president of the country's Serb Republic for questioning after he defied the top court by holding an illegal referendum on whether his autonomous region should mark a national day.

The vote, on whether the Serb Republic should celebrate a Jan. 9 "Statehood Day" holiday, was widely seen as an attempt by Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik to emphasise its separateness from authorities in Sarajevo, the capital.
