BANATSKI SOKOLAC, Serbia (Reuters) – A Serbian village unveiled what it said was Europe’s first statue to the late Jamaican reggae star Bob Marley on Saturday, to promote tolerance in a region still recovering from war.

Two Balkan musicians, one from Croatia and one from Serbia, unveiled the monument in the village of Banatski Sokolac at midnight during a gathering of rock bands from the Balkans.

“Bob Marley promoted peace and tolerance in his music,” said Mirko Miljus, an organizer.
