Bosnia (September 1995)

September 1, 1995

All food aid convoys, with the exception of Bihac, were suspended as of 30 August.

Recent reports from Bosnia have centred upon serious violations of international humanitarian law in and around the former safe havens of Srebrenica and Zepa. On 10 August, the Security Council adopted Resolution 1010 (1995), demanding immediate UN access to displaced persons from the Bosnian Serbs and that ICRC be allowed to visit and register anyone detained against their will.

Ten thousand civilians from Srebrenica and 3,000 from Zepa have been reported missing, while the many reports of mass killings, beatings and rape are almost certainly true.
