Sir: It is good news that Mostar's Old Bridge has been rebuilt (report, 23 July). However, problems remain. Mostar now has a small Croat majority. Bosnia's High Representative, Lord Ashdown, recently imposed on Mostar a political system where no ethnic majority could take control.
This would be a good idea if applied to all of Bosnia's towns such as Muslim-controlled Sarajevo or Serb-controlled Banja Luka. But it will not be. By effectively discriminating against the Croats in such a manner, Lord Ashdown has simply ensured that tensions in Mostar will remain for many years to come.
