Balkan Update

May 13, 1994

Battlefronts across Bosnia heated up ahead of a GENEVA meeting today in which the United States, its European allies and Russia will try to set the agenda for future peace talks. One U.N. military observer was killed and another seriously wounded when they came under fire near SARAJEVO.

In WASHINGTON, the Senate voted to require President Clinton to lift the arms embargo against Bosnia, but the amendment was contradicted by a second amendment.

United Nations chief Boutros Boutros-Ghali recommended that the U.N. limit its peacekeeping role in the six "safe areas" declared a year ago, and said more peacekeeping troops will be needed in Bosnia.
