Balkan Update

August 25, 1993

Until new conditions were met, Bosnian Croats held up a relief convoy to Muslims in MOSTAR. In an expansion of American aid efforts in Bosnia, the U.S. Air Force began food airdrops into the city.


Bosnian Croats rejected international protectorate status for Mostar and declared a Croat republic with the besieged city as its capital.

NATO sources in BRUSSELS say the threat of air strikes against forces blocking aid supplies in Bosnia could apply to Croats besieging Mostar as well as the Serbs around Sarajevo.

In a move apparently dictated by the battles in Mostar and elsewhere, the Bosnian presidency ordered all conscripts to report for military duty.
