Movie director Emir Kusturica’s plan to build a mini-town in honour of famous writer Ivo Andric has hit a new snag, after locals from Trebinje complained that he was plundering their town of old stone to build it.

Stone for the construction of Andricgrad, within Visegrad, was apparently being removed from Trebinje, in southeast Bosnia, until locals stopped workers from doing so, saying they already ruined part of a 130-year-old Austrian building.
