ABSTRACT
The article reports that the International Criminal Tribunal surveyed the fields near Srebrenica, under the protection of US troops. The fields are believed to hold the remains of up to 7,000 Muslims massacred by Serb fighters. In Sarajevo, James Wofesohn, President of the World Bank, said that Bosnia needs at least $1 billion from the international community to rebuild, if peace is to be maintained. A Bosnian Serb leader has been reported to state that he would ignore his ouster by Radovan Karadzic, showing that there is the prospect of a territorial split within the purported Bosnian Serb state between the different factions. Internationally, many officials state that they will not deal with Karadzic, because of his indictment for war crimes and his opposition to the reintegration of Bosnia. The War Crimes Tribunal said that they would hold a hearing to accuse Karadzic and his military commander; General Ratko Mladic, of genocide and war crimes against humanity. Their aim is to increase the pressure for their arrests. The NATO-led police force has held off increasing pressure, to avoid conflict.
