Letter: Liquor louts

THE WORST atrocities happen in Bosnia when extremist irregular troops go on the rampage while under the influence of 'slivovitz', their local brew.

I could hardly believe it when I read Peter James's suggestion (Letters, 27 February) that 'the liquor seized by customs officials . . . could be used to relieve the suffering in Bosnia and Herzegovina, instead of wasting it'. If this is some special type of humour, I am not laughing. He further suggests fresh fish that French fishermen are destroying could be sent to Bosnia. It would be rather 'high' by the time it got there several weeks later.
