General 'not held'
Sunday 14 March 1993
Sarajevo (Reuter) - The UN commander in Bosnia-Herzegovina denied reports yesterday that he was being held against his will in a besieged Muslim town, and said he was there to try to save its population from the ravages of war. In a ham radio broadcast from Srebrenica, an eastern town under Serbian siege for 11 months, General Philippe Morillon demanded an immediate end to the Serbian offensive in the region and the opening of relief corridors to trapped Muslim towns.
A UN spokesman had said that Muslim forces in Srebrenica were refusing to allow the general to leave until a UN convoy was allowed to enter the town.
