Second round of severe floods hit Bosnia farming village

Around 300 people from a central Bosnian village have been evacuated because of severe flooding.

Zeljezno Polje has been hit by floods for the second time in three months.

The small farming community was almost completely wiped off the map in May by torrents of water and mud destroying everything in its path.

It was the worst flooding in over a century.

Many in the small farming village in central Bosnia, are angry because there has been no sign of help or funding from the authorities in Sarajevo.

In protest hundreds of residents blocked the main highway connecting Sarajevo and Zagreb, causing traffic jams 20 kilometres long.

Croats from a nearby village showed their support and were the first to bring help to their flooded neighbours.
