New Sarajevo Violence

SARAJEVO () -- French NATO troops used tanks and armored personnel carriers to cordon off a Sarajevo apartment block Saturday after violence flared overnight between Moslems and Serbs, witnesses said.


Trouble erupted along a tense communal confrontation line in Dobrinja, a neighborhood in the west of the city built to house athletes during the 1984 winter Olympics.


One Moslem man was shot in the chest during the disturbance Friday and a Serb was rescued by the French after being slightly wounded when three hand grenades were thrown at the car he was driving, NATO and UN police sources said.
