- Story Text: A second contingent of French forces arrived at the Croatian port of Split on Tuesday (June 13), to bolster the United Nations (U.N.) rapid reaction force for Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The first wave of French troops had disembarked earlier in the day.
French Super Etendard fighter aircraft practised take-offs and landings from the deck of the Marechal Foch aircraft carrier, floating in the Adriatic Sea, as ground troops disembarked at Split harbour.
Some 10,000 French, British and Dutch combat troops are flowing into the Balkans primarily to salvage United Nations (U.N.) humanitarian operations in Bosnia crippled by separatist Serb blockades, shootings and hostage-taking.
