(AP) Dozens of people have run in the Serbian capital of Belgrade to express solidary with the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

That's in a country where anti-American sentiment still runs high over the 1999 U.S.-led NATO bombing of Serbia.

The race dubbed "Boston We Are With You" was organized Tuesday through social networking sites. Milan Miletic, one of the organizers, says "there should be no violence in sports because it should unite people and overcome borders."

The participants ran past the ruins of government buildings destroyed during the NATO air war that forced Serbia to relinquish control of its former province of Kosovo. The runners paused by the American embassy, where they left a message of support.
