A BRITISH armoured vehicle escorting a United Nations aid convoy waits yesterday to get through a Bosnian Croat HVO army checkpoint on the way to the Muslim stronghold of Zenica. The convoy was 'testing' the reopened road for relief supplies through Crotian territory to central Bosnia. It was the first to pass through the area since 24 October, Reuter reports. The group, which started in Tomislavgrad and left 10 trucks in Vitez, passed along the road closed after the killing a month ago of a Danish driver during Croat-Muslim fighting. A spokeswoman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees said that a second aid convoy from Banja Luka, with 120 tons of food, had also got through to Travnik.
