Balkan Update

October 27, 1993

Bosnia cracked down on army racketeers, arresting nearly 200 suspects in SARAJEVO. After a day of gunbattles in the Bosnian capital, the leader of one of the biggest army criminal gangs surrendered to government security forces and a second was said to be surrounded.

U.N. peacekeepers who entered the village of STUPNI DO, site of a reported massacre, found it completely destroyed and said there was evidence civilians were slaughtered.

Four rounds were fired Monday at the armored car carrying Lt. Gen. Francis Briquemont, commander of U.N. forces in Bosnia.
