A Western diplomat said the two British soldiers were making the rounds of Sarajevo night spots after arriving from their headquarters in Banja Luka in north-western Bosnia. He said they were refused entrance to the Senator night club early on Tuesday morning because they had been drinking, and they were carrying weapons.

The soldiers were picked up by Italian soldiers and put in custody of military police.
