Balkan Update

February 09, 1994

Besieging Serbs dramatically reduced their rate of fire against SARAJEVO. U.N. observers recorded only 34 Serb artillery rounds into the city over the past 24 hours, a fraction of the normal rate, although Serb sniping was intense for part of the time.

In ZAGREB, Croatian radio reported that the leader of the Bosnian Croats, Mate Boban, had resigned. Boban, whose forces have suffered severe setbacks recentlyin central Bosnia, already has been replaced as the Bosnian Croats' chief negotiator at peace talks in GENEVA. The resignation was an apparent concession to the Muslim-led government and the world community ahead of a new round of Genevatalks.
