PALE (Reuter) - A UN relief convoy heading for the Muslim enclave of Zepa in eastern Bosnia was forced to turn back within a mile of its destination. The office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Zagreb denied reports that the convoy had reached Zepa, saying it was forced to return to Borik for the night.

It remained unclear why the Serbs refused to allow the convoy through when a Serb commander at Borik, six miles away, said on Friday that he had orders to let it pass. A barricade of fallen trees halted the eight-truck convoy, escorted by UN troops and carrying 80 tons of supplies.
