- Story Text: Bosnian Serb army sources said on Tuesday (September 26) that Bosnian government troops tried to make an advance on their lines some 15 km (9 miles) south-east of Sanski Most, but failed in doing so.
Bosnian Serb forces said they made significant gains in a counter-offensive against Moslem and Croat troops which they launched on a line between Bosanski Novi and Sanski Most, about 40 km (25 miles) to the southeast.
In a statement, they said Serb forces had inflicted heavy casualties on Moslem troops near Sanski Most.
The United Nations reported relative quiet in northern Bosnia where Moslem and Croat armies have recently swept up territory from Bosnian Serbs stunned by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) airstrikes.
Meanwhile, the first group of about 200 Bosnian Moslems who fought against Bosnian government troops in north-west Bosnia, returned to their native town of Velika Kladusa under auspices of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
This group belongs to over 30,000 rebel Moslems who have been refugees in Croatia since August, when their beleaguered leader Fikret Abdic surrendered to allied Croatian and Bosnian forces.
Until now, they have rejected to be returned to Bosnia as they were afraid of possible harassment by their own countrymen.
But UNHCR, United Nations and European Union officials managed to arrange their return to their native town.
UNHCR officials refused to give any statements about how secure these people were going to be in Velika Kladusa. No Bosnian army military was seen around the town.
