Rich Investors Bring a Little Bit of Kuwait to Bosnia

Sounds "idyllic":
Angry locals are protesting about a Bosnian town built by Middle Eastern investors which has Arabic as its 'official' language - and where locals can only enter if they work as servants.

The 160 homes have been constructed in a luxury enclave near Tarcin, five miles west of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo.

But furious locals say that their only way of accessing the area is through being hired as servants or cleaners - and claim most of the homes contain the wives of wealthy businessmen.

The houses - marketed only in Kuwait - are being sold for 150,000 euros (£133,000).

Adverts for the estate call Bosnia a Muslim country 'gifted with beautiful nature by Allah.'...
Money talks (even if the locals balk).
