- Story Text: Bosnian government forces withdrew heavy artillery from bases in the centre of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on Saturday (February 3) in compliance with a midnight deadline outlined under the Dayton accord.
Four trucks towing anti-aircraft weapons and artillery pieces left the Tito barracks and four more left from Hrasnica, a Bosnian Government-controlled area near the airport.
The convoy moved out onto Mount Igman under escort of the Implementation Force (IFOR) to Tarcin, about 25 kilometres (17 miles) away.
About 4,000 square kilometres (1,500 sq miles) of territory are to change hands between the Serb Republic and the Moslem-Croat federation which comprise Bosnia.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) said on Saturday that Bosnia's formerly warring factions appeared to be on track to meet the midnight deadline.
Elsewhere, on former confrontation lines in Sarajevo, people were, for the first time, walking along streets which have been no-go areas since the beginning of the war.
In the Vojnicko Polje district close to the Serb-held Nedjarici area, people were clearing away debris left by years of conflict.
