“I personally hope he [Gen. Ratko Mladic] burns in the hottest corner of hell. I hope that their (the Serbs’) sleep is punctuated by the screams of the children and the cries of their mothers.” – Larry Hollingworth, the senior U.N. refugee official

Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Hundreds of women and children, including dozens of wounded, jammed trucks Tuesday to flee the misery of Srebrenica, where Serb shelling killed at least 56 people on Monday.
Of the 650 people who arrived in government-held Tuzla hours later, 47 were hospitalized, officials of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees reported.
Robert Johansson, a Swede who drove one of the trucks, said the convoy was stoned by [Serbian] bystanders when it passed Serb-held Zvornik.
Sarajevo radio reported late Tuesday, meanwhile, that the eastern and norther front lines in the Srebrenica area were being heavily shelled with mortars and multiple rocket launchers.
Those who perished Monday in Srebrenica, a Muslim enclave, included at least 15 children. At least 90 people were injured, 73 seriously, in the bombardment that coincided with the first patrols by NATO warplanes of the U.N.-imposed no-fly zone over Bosnia.
U.N. officials in Zagreb, Croatia, think the eventual death toll will be much higher because of a lack of medical facilities and supplies.
Larry Hollingworth, the senior U.N. refugee official in Sarajevo, said of the person who ordered the Srebenica attack:
“I personally hope he burns in the hottest corner of hell. I hope that their (the Serbs’) sleep is punctuated by the screams of the childrenand the cries of their mothers.”
