Montenegro Votes to Secede from Serbia

From Yahoo!News:  With nearly all the ballots counted, it’s official — Montenegro has voted by a slim margin to secede from Serbia, and thus become their own separate nation. 

“I congratulate you on your state,” said the pro-independence prime minister, Milo Djukanovic. “Today, the citizens of Montenegro voted to restore their statehood.”

According to the article, “people fired celebratory shots in the air and drove up and down the main street, honking and waving the eagle-emblazoned flag used when Montenegro last enjoyed independence, from 1878-1918.”
