By Daria Sito-Sucic SARAJEVO (Reuters) - A Bosnian woman has agreed to meet the son she bore as the result of wartime rape after having read of a film made about the now 22-year-old man and his search for his biological parents, the film director said on Thursday. Director Semsudin Gegic said the woman, a Muslim Bosniak who lives in the United States, had called him after she saw a Reuters article published on Tuesday about the premiere of Gegic's film in Bosnia. "She called me from the United States and said she was ready to meet Alen and agreed that I can film their encounter." Gegic quoted her as having told him: "I don't want any sin on my soul." Alen Muhic's mother was repeatedly raped by a Bosnian Serb soldier early in Bosnia's 1992-95 war, and gave birth to a boy she abandoned. Gegic's second documentary film about Muhic, "An Invisible Child's Trap", documents his painful bid to track down and meet his parents, a quest that had ultimately proved fruitless.
