Widespread irregularities prevented many Serbs from voting in national elections in Croatia on Sunday, in a flunked first test of U.S.-backed plans to lead the last rebel enclave in the Balkan country back to Croatian rule. Voting was so chaotic in Eastern Slavonia, a Serb-held enclave in the eastern corner of Croatia, that U.N. officials first ordered polls to stay open an extra two hours Sunday night and then for nine more hours today.

Her family has lived here, in the country now called Croatia, for 800 years. She is a citizen of Croatia.
