Nine people were killed and 10 were wounded in a mortar and artillery attack on central Sarajevo yesterday, the latest in a series of relatively isolated attacks on the Bosnian capital, Reuter reports from Sarajevo.

Doctors at Kosevo hospital, the main casualty centre, said five women and three men were killed by mortar fire and a soldier was killed by a sniper. Serbs were reported to have attacked two Muslim enclaves in eastern Bosnia that are supposed to be 'safe areas' under UN protection. Government-controlled Sarajevo radio said four people had been killed and two wounded over the past few days by Serb artillery attacks on Gorazde, and five people were wounded by shelling in Srebrenica.
