SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Shells slammed into downtown Sarajevo today, reportedly killing at least seven people, as warring factions fought on for the Bosnian capital and other strategic points across the republic.
Bosnian radio reported at least five killed and 15 wounded by Serb-fired shells exploding near people lined up for water. Like heat and electricity, water has been cut off to most households for weeks, forcing people to line up for public distribution.
Exploding shells in another section of downtown Sarajevo killed two more people, said the radio.
Elsewhere, the Tanjug news agency reported a Bosniak artillery atack on the Serb controlled northern Bosnian town of Doboj and around Bihac. Bosnian Serb military sources spoke of battles around Bratunac, on the border with Serbia.
Fighting continued for a third day between Croat and Bosniak troops in central Bosnia.
As the capital suffered through another day of its nearly 10-month siege, the leader of Bosnia’s Serbs lashed out at the European Community and the United Nations and warned his people will not buckle under international pressure.
Bosnian Serb fighters meanwhile help up a relief convoy to an isolated eastern town where 85 reportedly died of cold and hunger in a single day this week.
