Over the summer, Angelina Jolie announced that she was going to write and direct a romance set during the Bosnian War. It would be a "low-budget tale of a Bosnian woman who falls in love with a Serbian military man," that's "not a political statement." But that statement wasn't enough to assuage fears over the problematic nature of a love story that must transcend mass rape and ethnic cleansing. In October, Jolie's film permit was revoked as Bakira Hasecic, president of the Women Victims of War association, said: "In the film, a victim is really falling in love with her torturer." The permit matter was handled quietly, and Jolie got back on track.

Now reports reveal further problems as women assaulted during the Bosnian War continue to protest.
