- Story Text: Fighting continued on Sunday (April 23) near the Serb-held town of Bosanska Krupa in northwest Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Bosnian Serb Army (BSA) sources said the Bosnian government Fifth Corps and the BSA clashed there.
Moslem troops systematically opened fire from across Una river on Bosanska Krupa, which is 30 kilometres (18 miles) northeast of the United Nations-declared "safe area" of Bihac.
Bosnian government forces first attacked out of the enclave last October before a fierce Serb counter-offensive pushed them back beyond their original positions.
In weekend attacks, the BSA said Moslem troops used snipers, 120 mm mortars and anti-aircraft "Bofors" guns.
The Fifth Corps has recently been resupplied with arms and ammunition, allowing for bolder attacks on BSA lines.
Heavy fighting also continued on Saturday south of Brcko in northern Bosnia, both Bosnian government radio and the Bosnian Serb agency SRNA reported.
Four tank grenades, fired from the Moslem side, hit the town of Brcko, killing one woman and wounding one man, BSA sources said.
Bosnian radio said Serb attacks against positions held by the government army and Bosnian Croat forces had been thwarted and that "the aggressors have suffered huge losses in manpower in every breakthrough they attempted." The radio added Serb units were shelling government positions near Brcko with large calibre howitzers and 120mm mortars.
Rebel Serbs, meanwhile, closed a section of Croatia's main motorway on Monday in protest at alleged obstructions of Serb commercial traffic.
The highway had recently reopened under a United Nations (U.N.)- -brokered accord.
Croatian officials had warned any unilateral re-closure of the highway by the Serbs could provoke war but there were no signs of heightened military tensions on Monday.
U.N. special envoy Yasushi Akashi said he had met with Croatian officials in an effort to resolve problems caused by the closure of the highway.
