BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Thousands have marched in silence in Serbia in a major outpouring of discontent triggered by two mass shootings last week that left 17 people dead and 21 wounded. The shootings on Wednesday in Belgrade at a school and a day later in a rural area south of the capital left the nation stunned. The shootings triggered calls to encourage tolerance and rid society of widespread hate speech and a gun culture stemming from the 1990s wars. Monday’s marches were called by opposition parties which demanded the resignations of some government ministers and changes in mainstream media that often host convicted war criminals and crime figures on their airwaves.
