ZAGREB - Croatia's military campaign in Bosnia-Herzegovina was thrown into chaos yesterday after government-supported forces shot dead the top Croatian paramilitary commander in the republic, writes Tony Barber.

The killing highlighted the extreme tensions between rival Croatian armed units and threatened to set off internal blood-letting at a time when the Croats are supposed to be allied with the Muslims in resisting the Serbian war effort. The murdered commander was Blaz Kraljevic, the leader of Bosnia's Croatian Defence Forces (HOS), the powerful paramilitary wing of the neo-fascist Croatian Party of Rights.
