In the streets of this riverfront town, amid bullet-pocked apartment blocks and the odd shell crater, the boys and girls of refugees and residents play at war. No child, naturally, wants to be a Serb. In the children's ward of the hospital, Bozana, 3, with cropped blond hair and big brown eyes, mutely accepts a stuffed toy from a Western visitor. A year in a Serbian concentration camp transformed her father into a raving psychotic. Now, Bozana says nothing as she fondles her toy.

Just a few steps from Subja Gashi's bed, chopped bits of a freight pallet are burning in a small stove, and none of the warmth touches her. It drifts up and away, through the cracks in the ruined Coca-Cola factory's roof, high above the bed where Gashi spends each day and night under a tent of synthetic, gray blankets.

The time has come to accept the fact that Serb aggression in Bosnia-Herzegovina will not be stopped any time soon and that the crisis of Bosnia must now be addressed as a refugee crisis. Many Bosnians have already fled to Croatia. Others are fleeing to Bosnian territory under Croatian control. For, despite various proven Croat atrocities against Serbs and Muslims, there is no evidence of any extermination/expulsion policy in Zagreb.

Prime Minister John Major's public criticism of beggars drew fire from political, religious and civic leaders Sunday in what is becoming another row for the British government.

They were the victims of an often confusing war whose gaunt figures, bruised limbs and haunted eyes first helped the world outside Bosnia-Herzegovina understand what it meant to be "ethnically cleansed." From Serbian concentration camps these thousands of Muslim detainees made their way to a transit camp in neighboring Croatia, where they joined more than half a million refugees from Bosnia's 14-month-old war awaiting an end to the fighting--or if the end doesn't come, a home somewhere else.
