Serbia holds drills to mark centenary of WWI end
The live-ammunition maneuvers on Saturday, dubbed "The Century of Winners," include 8,000 soldiers, 100 battle tanks and MiG-29 fighter jets supplied by Russia.
The former Serbian province declared independence in 2008 which Belgrade doesn't recognise.
Serbia is often wrongly accused of starting World War I after a Serb nationalist assassinated the Austrian archduke in Sarajevo, Bosnia, in 1914. Serbia suffered the worst losses proportional to the size of its army during the war. (AP) MRJ
