Plavsic wrestles for control of generals

Bosnian Serb President Biljana Plavsic tried to assert her control over the fractious army yesterday. The Western-backed Ms Plavsic, in a fight to the finish with hardline loyalists of indicted war criminal Radovan Karadzic, summoned the generals who last week disputed her authority to an afternoon meeting at her Banja Luka headquarters. A majority of the 11 general staff members attended, accounting for two thirds of the army, but chief of staff General Pero Colic stayed away.
