Bosnian Police face rioters.
Great shot - but weren't you in between the police and the rioters to get it? Brave or crazy?!!!
Yes, I got hit by both sides several times, the police were the worst even though I was in uniform!!
I love any good piece of photojournalism.. and this happens to be one of them. 'Click'
Great capture, sold it yet?
Adrenalinic moment.You shold tell us about the story.Your image is good enough but sometimes few words could help.Anyway this couldn't affect the quality of your photograph.Very well done.

Powerful stuff! Well done!
Agree with Ovi, great capture and excellent piece of photojournalism but would like to know a bit more about it.
Around 45 police trying to protect six people from a mob of over 400. A Portugese Army Crowd and Riot Control team were on the way in to support the police as they were in danger of being over run. They in turn were attacked and became over whelmed, at about this time the tear gas came out. The British Army then had to send in one of their teams to rescue the six people and to assist the police and Portugese out of what had become quite a difficult situation. It was estimated that over 500 petrol bombs were thrown that afternoon and evening but only seven people needed hospital treatment. As the main target of the mob was the 'six' and the police/military only became targets while protecting them it was relativly safe to wander around taking pictures, but I did get hit on several occasions from rocks, sticks and police as looking through a camera tends to cut down the field of view a little. Quite an exciting episode.
