The Sandžak is an ethnically-mixed Muslim-Slav (Bosniak) majority region of Serbia sandwiched between Montenegro, Kosovo and Bosnia. Its economy is underdeveloped and far poorer than many other regions in Serbia, partly because it was an Ottoman backwater until 1912, partly due to deliberate neglect by Serbian authorities between the world wars and under Milošević. Some people refer to the Sandžak somewhat ominously as the “Bermuda Triangle of the Balkans”. People, they say, have been known to disappear here without a trace.
