- Story Text: Fighting between Bosnian government troops and Bosnian Serbs continued on Wednesday (March 22) around the northern Moslem-held city of Tuzla where government forces and civilians have suffered heavy casualties.
United Nations (U.N.) officials said Monday's Bosnian government army assault on Serb positions in northern and central areas of the country had badly dented hopes for peace and struck a major blow to an already fragile ceasefire.
The government second corps fired over 100 artillery shells from the direction of Godusa and Pozarnice on Serb positions in the area of the Stolice relay and civilian targets in Priboj and Lopari, Bosnian Serb sources said.
The Bosnian Serbs Army (BSA) has retaken Lukavica and Piperi, around four kilometres from Tuzla, which were taken by Moslems in Monday's offensive on the Mount Majevica front.
BSA captain Bozo Kovacevic said the Moslem attack was was not expected but that the situation was now under control.
The government army offensive prompted Serb retaliation.
Bosnian radio reported that the death toll from a Serb attack on Tuzla city had risen by two to 21 and there were 74 wounded.
A U.N. spokesman said both sides were blocking the movements of U.N. troops, restricting their ability to observe events.
