Hundreds of angry Serbs attacked delegates from Croatia's ruling party as they tried to campaign in Eastern Slavonia. U.N. official Douglas Coffman said the Croatian Democratic Union held a news conference in the town of Vukovar to present candidates who will run in the Serbian enclave during elections April 13. U.N. peacekeepers escorted the candidates to safety after protesters lobbed eggs and bricks at them. No one was seriously injured, Coffman said.
