BELGRADE/SARAJEVO (Reuters) - A bishop called on Serbs to repent and pray for rain as the Balkans sizzled in soaring temperatures and poorly-resourced emergency services struggled to douse hundreds of wildfires set off after an exceptionally dry summer.

The European Union's peacekeeping force in Bosnia (EUFOR) deployed helicopters to battle fires in the eastern Bosnian region of Bratunac, and smoke hung across the southern Mostar valley from flames threatening some residential areas.
