Activists warn Balkan rivers at risk from hydropower plants
Unspoiled rivers in the Balkans are facing new dangers from small hydropower plants that have sprouted up across the region in recent years, environmental experts warned Thursday. In a declaration issued after a meeting in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, they urged Balkan governments to halt any further construction of hydro dams. "We want everybody to see that it is bad, and it is wrong and that we are devastating our natural beauties," said Irma Popovic Dujmovic, from World Wide Fund for Nature Adria group.
