SARAJEVO -- Bosnian Serbs besieging Sarajevo for the past 20 months, on Monday fired a number of shells on the market and shopping center of the Bosnia-Herzegovina capital, killing at least one person and wounding another 19, doctors said.
Shells, coming from Serbian positions throughout the morning, tore into the Ciglane market near Kosevo hospital and Marshal Tito street, the city's main thoroughfare, where the explosions wreaked havoc on civlians shopping for food or going about their business in the city center.
'It's terrible,' said Dr. Kemal Drnda, a surgeon at Kosevo hospital, where most of the wounded were taken.
Both sites are well known civilian areas in the predominantly Muslim city and distant from significant military targets.
As shelling continued in the capital, Sarajevo radio reported that Muslim-led Bosnian government army positions around the country were again under mortar, artillery and small arms fire from Bosnian Serb, Bosnian Croat and forces from neighboring Croatia.
At least one person was killed in the city of Mostar, 60 miles (100 km) southwest of Sarajevo, where Bosnian government troops and Croatian militia have engaged in heavy battles in the past six months.
