Following the November 30 beating death of South St. Louis’ Zemir Begic, Bosnian demonstrators took to the streets and “blocked some traffic in the area.” 

Breitbart News previously reported that 32-year-old Begic was in his car around 1 a.m. when four teens began beating on the vehicle. Begic stepped out of the car and the teens then beat him with hammers until he became unconscious and later died. 

The Huffington Post reports that demonstrators “took to the streets of [the South St. Louis] neighborhood on Sunday night to condemn the killing of [Begic].”  Around “50 people” gathered around Bevo Mill and some of these demonstrators blocked traffic. 

Michael Calhoun writes for CBS affiliate KMOX. He tweeted: “Bosnians are protesting in Bevo. One woman tells me they fled genocide and are now being killed in St. Louis.” 

Two of Begic’s attackers have been arrested. One of those attackers was 15 and the other was 16 years of age.
