Croatian Serbs hurled insults at Madeleine Albright, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, as she toured their territory Thursday, then pelted her motorcade with stones. Albright had gotten out of her car to take a walk in Vukovar. Like the rest of the Serb-held region of Eastern Slavonia, the town is to be handed over to Croatian rule in compliance with the Dayton, Ohio, peace accord. "You bitch!" angry Serbs shouted when Albright reached an open-air market downtown. "You fascist!"
