Balkan Update

December 22, 1993

Bosnia's warring factions promised to keep their troops from shooting at U.N. planes, after the U.N. suspended aid flights to SARAJEVO because gunfire hit an aircraft. The airlift is to resume today.

Serbs waged five infantry assaults on government positions on Mount Zuc, just north of the capital, Bosnian radio reported. U.N. officials reported fighting around TUZLA, DOBOJ and GRADACAC. Bosnian radio said government forces gained about 2 1/2 miles around central FOJNICA.

Bosnian Croat forces have unilaterally freed almost half of their 4,300 Muslim war prisoners in the past week, the Red Cross said.
