I was looking for a map of Sarajevo with street names — Google Maps doesn’t have any detail at the street level for the city — and when I tried Google Image Search, I found this gem from the 1990s. You can see Serbian artillery surrounding the city, and I think the red ‘spotlights’ are supposed to be dangerous areas where snipers had gunned down people in the streets. Also, you can see the UN-controlled airport in the lower left-hand corner of the screen; apparently, the only way people in the city itself could get to this area without exposing themselves to sniper fire was by going by tunnel. Crazy.
