Balkan Update

September 11, 1993

A U.N. convoy brought 100 tons of aid to embattled MOSTAR only the second such delivery to reach the divided city in three months.

As fighting resumed in Croatia, Serb rebels launched a fierce attack on the town of KARLOVAC. The rebels vowed to keep fighting until two villages seized Thursday had been recovered. They also banned military-age men from leaving the territory and suspended U.N.-sponsored peace talks.

The Croats released 350 Muslim prisoners from a detention center at DRETELJ, possibly in response to international outrage that erupted after some prisoners released last week reported torture and brutal conditions at the camp.

In a sign of divisions among Bosnian Serbs, the elite fighting force that has won key battles in the Bosnian war blockaded the northern Serb stronghold of BANJA LUKA to protest alleged war profiteering by Serb leaders.
