Balkan Update

November 02, 1993

A U.N. spokesman dismissed as "disinformation" a U.S. newspaper report that peacekeeping soldiers in SARAJEVO frequented a Serb-run brothel filled with captive Muslim and Croat women. He said that the brothel was in the suburb of Vogosca, to which as far as he knew U.N. troops never had access. He said the accusations against Canadian troops mentioned periods when they were no longer in Bosnia.

U.N. peacekeepers reopened the SARAJEVO airport to relief flights after halting the air bridge Sunday because of an attack in which a French officer was wounded by gunfire.

Fighting between Muslims and Croats in central Bosnia is breeding massacres of civilians, expulsions and other abuses, humanitarian groups warned.
