Davor Dragicevic, father of 21-year-old David Dragicevic speaks during an interview with the Associated Press, in the Bosnian town of Banja Luka, 240 kms northwest of Sarajevo, Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018. A father in Bosnia has led protests for months that have drawn thousands of people to protest injustice and top-level corruption in the Bosnian nation.
