SARAJEVO (Agencies) - Hostile fire from Bosnian and Serbian positions has forced a United Nations radar battery in Sarajevo to abandon its ceasefire monitoring mission four times in less than two weeks, UN sources said yesterday. Serbian and Bosnian forces clashed overnight in the city.

In New York, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the UN Secretary-General, wants to recruit at least 850 more civilians and police in Croatia to prevent 'ethnic cleansing' in Serb-dominated areas and to stop fighting from spilling over from Bosnia.

The warring parties, the European Community and the UN will meet in London on 26 to 28 August for peace talks, the Foreign Office said yesterday.
