Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Bosnia’s most polluting power plant linked with cancer” – below is their description.

A new health report by a Bosnian university has made a direct link between a coal-fired power plant and a high level of cancer.

Residents in the northern town of Bukinje say their town has emptied in the past decade.

They are now concerned about plans going ahead to expand the plant in a Chinese-backed deal, despite China’s pledge not to build new coal-fired plants abroad.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina, sometimes called Bosnia–Herzegovina and often known informally as Bosnia, is a country in South and Southeast Europe, located within the Balkans. Sarajevo is the capital and largest city.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina is bordered by Serbia to the east, Montenegro to the southeast, and Croatia to the north and southwest. It is not entirely landlocked; to the south it has a narrow coast on the Adriatic Sea, which is about 20 kilometres (12 miles) long and surrounds the town of Neum.

    The inland Bosnia region has a moderate continental climate, with hot summers and cold, snowy winters. In the central and eastern interior of the country the geography is mountainous, in the northwest moderately hilly, and in the northeast predominantly flatland. The smaller southern region, Herzegovina, has a Mediterranean climate and mostly mountainous topography.
