Hundreds of survivors of a massacre by Serbs during the Bosnian war stormed the U.N. building here Monday after hearing that a Muslim commander was about to be arrested for trial by the U.N. war crimes tribunal. A crowd of mostly women stoned security guards and police after breaking down a metal barrier and pounding on the building's glass doors. Security guards pushed them back.
