Letter: Military action in Sarajevo: false parallels, other cities and deadly claims

The Independent Online
Sir: Unless the Independent is one step ahead of the United Nations officials in Sarajevo, how can it justify the claim (leading article; 'An ultimatum now, talks later', 8 February) that 'one Bosnian Serb mortar round' caused the 'carnage' - the revulsion over which is, I am sure, deeply shared by all Serbs here in Britain - in Sarajevo last Saturday? Or are your sources of information inaccessible to UN officials stationed in

Sarajevo?

It seems ironic, but it does not take someone long to realise that the Slav-Muslims of Bosnia stand to gain most politically, morally and strategically, from the slaughter of innocent civilians.

Yours sincerely,

VLADA VJESTICA
