On this day 20 years ago, shots were fired on peaceful protesters in Sarajevo and the brutal three-and-a-half-year war in Bosnia-Herzegovina had begun. Today, the country’s ethnicities remain largely divided, the political system is in shambles and the economy faces enormous challenges. Worldview speaks with Velma Sarić, founder of the Sarajevo-based Post-Conflict Research Center, about the war’s legacy and Bosnia’s future. Also, film contributor Milos Stehlik gives his take on the new documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Joining Milos is Chicago chef "Sushi" Mike Ham of Tanoshii, who shares his philosophy of what makes the perfect piece of sushi. And Egyptian-born comedian Ahmed Ahmed, who's performing this weekend at the Laugh Factory, helps global citizen Narimon Safavi plan your international weekend on this week's Weekend Passport.
