In heavy snow and slush, vehicles plied along loaded with yuoung and old refugees, furniture and even pigs, while some Bosnian Serbs trudged along on foot.
Serbs fleeing the suburb of Vogosca left houses and shops ablaze and some shops were looted.
The suburbs are due to come under Bosnian government control by March 19 and the suburb of Vogosca is the first district to be handed over.
