Bosnian people gathered in front of municipality building in western Bosnian town of Drvar, 400 kms west of Sarajevo, on Monday, March 4, 2013. With candles, speeches and an obituary plastered on walls reading "Town of Drvar 1883 - 2013," the residents symbolically laid this town to rest in peace on Monday. Two months ago, the last company in Drvar closed down, sending the town's unemployment rate skyrocketing to around 80 percent. The town had no chance to survive the double tragedies of the 1992-95 Bosnian war and then the global financial crisis which have joined to kill off this once lively community. (AP Photo/Amel Emric)
