Bosnia Shelling Surges

SARAJEVO -- United Nations peacekeeping officers said Friday that an upsurge in shooting and shelling in central and northern Bosnia jeopardized the week-old temporary cease-fire between Serb and Moslem-led forces. British Lieutenant General Sir Michael Rose, UN peacekeeping commander in Bosnia, appealed to Serb and Bosnian army officers to uphold the shaky truce, a UN spokeswoman said in Sarajevo. Bosnian Serb and Moslem Bosnian army forces traded fire southeast and north of the central town of Maglaj on Wednesday, the UNPROFOR said.
