The top international envoy to Bosnia appealed yesterday for more authority to overcome foot-dragging by the country's rival sides on reuniting the war-divided country. Two years after the Dayton agreement that ended the war, Bosnia looks like two countries, not one, lacking passports, a common currency and a flag.

Carlos Westendorp told a 51-nation meeting reviewing progress in implementing the agreement that he needs more political backing to break the deadlocks.
