A U.N. convoy Saturday reached the Muslim sector of MOSTAR,Bosnia's second largest city, which has not received aid since June.

Twenty-one elderly Bosnian Jews were evaucuated from SARAJEVO by bus and five patients, accompanied by eight relatives, were flown to the Netherlands. Organizers said about 1,000 Jews left the city in nine previous evacuations. They said about 700 Jews remain in Sarajevo.

At the UNITED NATIONS, the Security Council moved a step closer to setting up a tribunal to prosecute war criminals in the former Yugoslavia by narrowing down a list of candidates to 23 potential judges.

In GENEVA, Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic said Muslims faced only disaster if they failed to accept the latest peace plan proposal.
