In an effort to hold onto recently captured Bosnian territory, Croatia will send up to 100,000 Muslim and ethnic Croat refugees to the region. The plan drew fire from U.N. refugee agency officials, who charge that the refugees will be resettled in towns too close to the ongoing fighting. TIME's Marguerite Michaels reports that it's likely Croat President Franjo Tudjman will try to expel all of the more than 300,000 refugees. "Tudjman has in the past made no secret that he doesn't like Muslims. He wants to get these Muslim refugees out of Croatia." Despite significant progress towards peace, this points out how much further there is to go, Michaels notes. "The negotiators are all talking nice to each other around these round tables, but on the ground it's still a mess."
