Croatia becomes 28th member of EU

7/03/2013
Croatia has become the 28th member of the European Union, with crowds joining celebrations in the capital Zagreb.

Fireworks lit the sky as membership became effective at midnight, with President Ivo Josipovic describing the event as historic.

It comes almost two decades after Croatia's brutal war of independence. But Analysts say enthusiasm for the EU in the country has been dampened by the eurozone crisis, and Croatia's own economic problems.
