Sarajevo on Agenda

SARAJEVO ( --Bosnian Serbs met their Moslem foes Monday for talks on reopening routes into Sarajevo, closed by the Serbs last Wednesday in the wake of their refusal to accept an international peace plan.

The UN hoped to restore a commercial route into the city opened in March after Serbs, who had besieged Sarajevo for two years, withdrew heavy weapons to avoid NATO air raids.

It also wanted the two factions to salvage a deal to free an estimated 500 prisoners of war on each side and to persuade both sides to get rid of snipers who continue to shoot civilians in Sarajevo.
