It was renamed SAO Semberija (Serbian Cyrillic: САО Семберија) in November 1991, and SAO Semberija and Majevica (САО Семберија и Мајевица[3]) in December 1991.[2] It included three municipalities (Bijeljina, Lopare and Ugljevik[4]), with a population of 150,000, out of whom 56–59% were ethnic Serbs.[5] The capital was Bijeljina.[2]
