NotesArtwork not dated, date estimated from news News : Bosnian Serb troops took 63 British and 102 Dutch peacekeepers captive as the Mayor of Bihac issued a desperate plea for help and Serb forces appeared poised to take over the enclave yesterday. As the battle for Bihac intensified fresh divisions arose between Britain and the United States over paralysis of Western policy in Bosnia Herzegovina. Robert Dole, the Senate majority leader who arrives in Briatin for talks tomorrow with John Major and Douglas Hurd, called for a more robust stand against the Serbs and singled out Britain as the main obstacle to decisive and co-ordinated action. Although the British and French had troops in Bosnia, it was London and not Paris that was stopping a more muscular approach. Mr Dole said, "The biggest stumbling block is the British. They are the one's who want to do absolutely nothing. [Philip Webster, The Times, 28th November 1994]
