Bosnia-Herzegovina: Possible holding of 11 relief workers as hostages
There is concern that a group of 11 relief workers, ten men and a woman, are being held as hostages by the de facto Bosnian Serb authorities. The aid workers from the French relief agency Premiere Urgence were reportedly arrested on 8 April 1994 after their convoy was stopped by Bosnian Serb soldiers just before entering the Sarajevo suburb of Ilidza. They are currently detained in a prison in Kula, another suburb of Sarajevo.
