Balkan Update

June 20, 1993

In Croatia, ethnic Serbs voted on uniting the third of that republic's territory they control with the 70 percent of Bosnia held by Bosnian Serbs. A yes vote, as expected, could heighten tensions in Croatia and lead Croatia's leaders to rethink support for carving up Bosnia along ethnic lines. The vote continues today.

Riot police in BELGRADE clashed with about 10,000 demonstrators who demanded the release of jailed opposition leader Vuk Draskovic and called for the resignation of President Slobodan Milosevic of Serbia.
