Confusion surrounded the resumption of aid convoys to central Bosnia yesterday, with United Nations military sources saying the first trucks would roll on Wednesday, while UN aid workers said they knew nothing of the move, AFP reports from Sarajevo. The UN Secretary-General, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, suspended convoys to the region four weeks ago after a Danish truck driver was killed in a mortar attack near Novi Travnik, an attack the UN blamed on the Muslim-dominated Bosnian army.

THE tenacity of human life can be remarkable. In the 40 Minutes Special (BBC 2) on three young aid workers, we were shown a one- year-old child who weighed only three pounds. His face had a look of baffled surprise and his eyes seemed to spin a little unsteadily, as if even those tiny muscles had run out of energy. Yet when a cup of formula came within reach, he had the strength to reach out and his strange chirping cry, synchronised with his breathing, rose a little in entreaty.
