Photo of the Day: What in the world?

December 8, 2011

Update: The correct answer to this was Belgrade, Serbia. In the photo, a woman walks past a defaced mural of former Bosnian Serb army chief Ratko Mladic. Serbia is holding its breath to see if the European Union on December 9 will allow the country to get candidacy status.

Since none of you were able to guess where the Santa in Wednesday’s photo hailed from, we’re making this an easy one for you. You have read about him in the news, you have seen his face on television and in magazines. Now tell us where this photo is from.
