International officials condemned the confiscation of a satirical magazine and warned Bosnian officials they would be punished.

"Press freedom is democracy in many ways, and this is entirely unacceptable," said David Foley, a spokesman for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, or OSCE. Police of the Sarajevo canton seized copies of the Polikita satirical magazine. Its cover shows a montage of four pictures in which the face of former Yugoslav Communist leader Josip Broz Tito changes into that of Izetbegovic. AP - Sarajevo
