Yesterday international mediators ended two days of talks with Bosnia's warring factions without agreement on dividing up the former Yugoslav republic. Bosnian Serbs accused Muslim leaders of making 'megalomaniac demands' for territory at the latest round of peace talks, held in the French lakeside resort of Talloires.

The talks did bring an agreement for Bosnia's Serbs, Croats and Muslims to meet again soon to try to end the war. While the politicians squabbled over maps of their devastated country, their armies were reported to be battling for territory in northern Bosnia.
