Violations against the tenuous cease-fire negotiated by ex-President Jimmy Carter are serious enough to justify a special trip by Lt. Gen. Sir Michael Rose -- the top U.N. commander in the area -- to northwest Bosnia. Rose announced that he would fly to the Bihac region -- the site of the most serious cease-fire violations -- tomorrow in an effort to save the truce. Rose's mission: Rein in the Croatian Serbs, who haven't signed on to Carter's truce. Under the agreement, which took effect Saturday, the government and the Bosnian Serbs agreed to a one-week cease-fire as they negotiate a four-month truce.
