such a developmental boom. Yugoslavia thumb 250px right Older part of the town at night (File:Stara carsija.jpg)During the Second World War, the local population (predominantly Muslim) signed the Resolution of the Muslims of Zenica in May 1942, and formed Muslim militias in the villages of Šerići, Doglodima, Babino and other places who joined the Yugoslav Partisans. Zenica managed to escape major physical damage or large-scale reprisals and human casualties. Following the liberation of Zenica by the Partisans in 1945, the town began to grow rapidly as the steel industry developed further. The town spread to encompass the former villages of Bilino Polje, Klopce and Radakovo, and new apartment blocks were built to house the new miners and steelworkers. In 1948 the population was only 12,000 people, but by 1961 it had grown to over 30,000. In 1981 the town had over 63,000 people, and in the last census taken 1991 Zenica was a city of some 96,027 people. Zenica had seen a sixfold increase in its population over 50 years. Bosnian War In 1991, the year before the Bosnian War began, Zenica became the headquarters of one of the first private and independent radio stations in Eastern Europe, Radio CD-CEMP. In the spring of 1993, Zoran Misetic, a journalist and the owner of Radio CD-CEMP, was granted the Belgian Award for Independent Journalism: the "Pen Of Peace". On 19 April 1993, 15 civilians were killed and 50 others were injured, when a HVO Croatian Howitzer grenade landed in the market place of Zenica. The grenade was fired from the village of Puticevo, which is 15 kilometers from Zenica. A total of six grenades landed, in rounds of three. One round of two at 12.10 pm, one round of two shells at 12.24 pm, and one round of two shells at 12.29 pm. During this period Zenica was isolated from the rest of the world for a year and a half. The only hope was the market place. Zenica also claimed a lot of civilian casualties from sniper fire, fire fights and hunger. The fourth-largest city in Bosnia was dying of hunger, had no water and no electricity during that period and was unsafe. During the Bosnian War, the demographics of the city were to a certain extent altered by receiving a large number of ethnic Bosniaks from other parts of Bosnia, while the Serb population left for parts of Serb-controlled Bosnia. Today, Zenica is trying to regain the economic influence it used to have before the war. One of the biggest steel mills in South Central Europe has been privatized and now bears the name of the Mittal Steel Corp.
