Bosnian peace talks in GENEVA collapsed after it had appeared the three sides were near agreement to divide Bosnia into ethnic zones.

United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali met NATO chief Manfred Woerner in GENEVA and discussed how to enforce any Bosnian peace deal.

Croats and Muslims seemed to be holding their fire in MOSTAR in line with their 48-hour truce. But battles between them flared in central Bosnia. Fighting was especially intense in GORNJI VAKUF.

Serbia's main opposition leader denounced in BELGRADE the proposed peace accord,calling it "legalization of ethnic cleansing and genocide." Said Vuk Draskovic: "Muslims and Serbs are so inseparably mixed in Bosnia that no magician could create fair ethnic borders."
