Muslim-led government troops, some apparently manning borrowed Bosnian Croat tanks, have pushed back Serbs on a broad front in northern Bosnia, UN officials reported yesterday, AP reports from Sarajevo.

The push, which began on Monday, has yielded 2km (1.2 miles) of territory along a 10-km (six-mile) line south-west of Tesanj, said the officials. The offensive apparently was aimed at expanding the government-held Tesanj region toward Croat-controlled Zepce and Muslim-held Zenica in the south-west.
