YUGOSLAVIA PEACE TALKS RESUME Bosnia's warring factions reportedly made no progress Aug. 31 on a plan to divide the country along ethnic lines, despite a mediator's warning that without agreement, Serb forces might slice Bosnia in two. As peace talks resumed Aug. 31, Bosnian President Alija Izetbegovic described the proposed plan as "unfair," saying it rewarded Serbian and Croatian aggression.
