Letter: Uses of bombs in Bosnia

Sir: Douglas Hurd, like most people in top jobs and public life, works long hours and carries heavy responsibilities. It is not surprising that he is planning a holiday, as the front- page 'Comment' article ('Sarajevo's agony: Britain's shame', 6 August) suggests. Do I assume from the snide remarks that you think there will be no Foreign Office cover, or that Mr Hurd will be away from civilised forms of communication?

There is great willingness on the part of the British government, as has already been shown, to assist the peoples of the former Yugoslavia. Their failure to reach a solution is of more concern to me than Douglas Hurd having a well-deserved holiday to recharge his batteries ready for difficult times ahead. I assume the writer doesn't take holidays.

Yours faithfully,


Marlborough, Wiltshire
