Attack against Vučić was not unprovoked

Serbia still refuses to recognise the Srebrenica massacre as genocide so it's not surprising that its head of government was attacked by stone-wielding demonstrators at the ceremony on the memorial site, the liberal daily Mladá fronta Dnes comments: "The Serb Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić deserves respect for coming to Srebrenica. And also for his conciliatory reaction to a stone-throwing Bosniak. But he too rejects the word 'genocide'. It was his government that appealed to Moscow a few days ago to block a UN Security Council resolution that called the tragedy a genocide. Vučić came to the commemoration of that orgy of evil and death with a half-hearted apology. None of his well-meant words about reconciliation could cover the bitter aftertaste that left. The stone thrown at him only confirms that."
