SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP)
A Dutch peacekeeper died from wounds suffered Saturday while retreating from a Bosnian Serb infantry assault on the southern edge of a government-held eastern enclave.
The soldier, whose name was not immediately released, was part of a contingent at an observation post that was surrounded in the Serb assault.
The Serbs eventually allowed the peacekeepers to withdraw, during which the soldier was hit by fire from government positions, said U.N. spokesman Jim Landale. He is the 67th peacekeeper to die in combat in the former Yugoslavia.
