    This is an interesting article about the attempted kidnapping of PSV star Mateja Kezman. It appears that a Serb living in the Netherlands with connections to organized crime was trying to pull it off. I know that Kezman plays for Bosnia-Herzegovina, and that (as the article mentions) he's ethnically Serbian, but as to any motivation besides the obvious (ongoing antipathy between Bosnia and Serbia), who can say? It's a shame that the tragic situation in the Balkans persists and that it threatens to extend to football.

    Checked on this--you've got it right. Hm--then the kidnapping makes even less sense.
