Bosnia's parties came under heavy international pressure to go through with this weekend's municipal elections, jeoparised by the mounting tension between rival factions of Bosnian Serbs.

The international High Representative on civilian affairs, Carlos Westendorp, held crisis talks with the leader of one of the two Serb factions, Momcilo Krajisnik, in a meeting hosted in Belgrade by the Yugoslav President, Slobodan Milosevic. Mr Krajisnik was trapped in a hotel in Banja Luka for several hours on Tuesday after trying in vain to organise a demonstration against his rival, Biljana Plavsic.
