The United States and its European allies moved Thursday toward declaring the strategically important Bosnian town of Bihac a demilitarized zone in a last-ditch effort to prevent it from falling to rebel Serb troops. The action came at a high-level meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Brussels as Serbian forces began moving into outlying areas of the largely Muslim town, climaxing a two-week siege.

The United States renewed consultations with key allies Tuesday over possible new air strikes to protect the Bosnian town of Bihac, as Serbian nationalists closed in on the area after Monday's Western attack on a Serbian-held airstrip. Clinton Administration officials said the United States is again pressing the United Nations to call in more warplanes from the 16-country North Atlantic Treaty Organization to prevent the fall of Bihac in the face of the intensified Serbian onslaught.

U.S. aerial gunships prepared to strike at Bosnian Serbs firing at French troops, but the raid was called off Sunday after the Serbian guns fell silent and bad weather obscured the target. The attack order, coming less than two weeks after NATO planes shot down four Bosnian Serb fighter-bombers, demonstrated U.N. resolve to protect U.N. ground troops.
