- Story Text: Bosnian Serb forces were advancing against the Moslem-led government army in northwest Bosnia, Reuters journalists reported, but faced fresh attacks on other fronts in the former Yugoslav republic.
Bosnian Serb tanks and troops pushed back the government army southeast of the Moslem enclave of Bihac on Wednesday, entering villages at least 17 km (10.5 miles) from Bihac town, the journalists said.
A rebel Serb aircraft in Croatia joined the Bosnian Serb counter-attack around Bihac, firing rockets into the enclave, U.N.
"We understand an airplane fired two rockets at around 1110 GMT," said Lieutenant-Colonel Tim Spicer in Sarajevo. "It was outside the airspace of Bosnia-Herzegovina when it fired." Bosnian state radio said the air raid killed 10 people. One of the rockets caused a series of secondary explosions within the town, indicating the target could have been an ammunition dump.
The plane had taken off from Udbina, an airfield in rebel Serb-held territory in Croatia, said U.N. spokesman Paul Risley in Zagreb.
U.N. officials said the air raid was preceded by heavy shelling in and around Bihac, a U.N.-designated "safe area." They condemned the attack and said the Serbs had violated a no-fly zone over Bosnia.
