Balkan Update

October 24, 1993

A plan that would have resulted in an exchange of 6,400 detainees and prisoners of war by all three sides in the Bosnian war has in effect collapsed. New conditions on accounting for missing people that were set by the warring parties caused the plan to be delayed pending new negotiations.

The boom of artillery and tank fire echoed in the hills around SARAJEVO as government troops battled Serbian besiegers. At least 10 people were killed and 50 were wounded, officials reported.

As shelling increased in Sarajevo, United Nations engineers set out in hopes of restoring electricity to the city, which has been without power for nearly two weeks and could soon be without water.
