I'm surprised with the number of onlookers at the scene where a gunman with a rifle was firing shots outside the U.S. embassy in Sarajevo, Bosnia. AP photographer Amel Emric was very close to the scene, providing clear images of the gunman. One police officer was injured before the man was shot and arrested.
