Bosnia army and rebels clash

SARAJEVO (AP) - New fighting erupted yesterday in a corner of Bosnia where Muslims have squared off against each other, reflecting internal strains within the proposed ethnic republics.

'Blood is flowing again,' a Bosnian radio correspondent said in a report from army headquarters in Bihac, in north-western Bosnia. He said forces supporting the local leader, Fikret Abdic, had shelled army positions yesterday in the town of Johovica, at the north end of the so-called Bihac pocket. Two soldiers were wounded in the attack.

One person was killed and five were wounded in clashes over the weekend in the area.
