Sarajevo hosted its first Gay Pride parade amidst security concerns after conservative Muslim groups attempted to prevent the event.

Hundreds marched against the pride parade on Saturday in support of "traditional family values".

Bosnian police have increased security to secure the pride march including adding anti-sniper units in the city's centre, Reuters reported.

The march was attended by the British ambassador to Bosnia. The US ambassador to Bosnia was also expected to attend with his partner.
