Balkan Update

October 18, 1993

Residents of SARAJEVO were urged to stay indoors as occasional blasts shook the city. At least 10 people were killed and 57 wounded in Sarajevo over the weekend, officials said.

Rival Bosnian government and Serbian leaders met at Sarajevo airport and agreed to exchange all prisoners, starting Wednesday, Bosnian radio reported. Croatian radio reported that Croatian and Bosnian Croatian leaders remained committed to tomorrow as the start of their prisoner exchange with the Muslim-led Bosnian government.

A convoy, privately organized for GRADACAC in northeastern Bosnia, ran into trouble. Bosnian Croats in the central Bosnian town of PROZOR stole at least two loaded trucks from the predominantly Muslim-staffed convoy of 72 trucks and beat up some drivers. Convoy drivers said they had to leave a fuel tanker behind in return for safe passage through the town.
