Office of the Spokesman
On January 22, NATO-led forces arrested indicted Bosnian-Serb war
criminal Goran Jelisic near Bijeljina, Republika Srpska,
Bosnia-Herzegovina, and dispatched him to the Hague to stand trial. While
there is no specific information of a threat, the potential exists for
retaliation against American interests in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia.
In the wake of this operation, American citizens should pay close attention
to their personal security and exercise caution, especially in the areas
near Bijeljina, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and in Eastern Slavonia, Croatia.
For further information, please consult the Department of State's Travel
Warning and latest Consular Information Sheet for Bosnia-Herzegovina, and
the Consular Information Sheet for Croatia.
This Public Announcement expires on February 28, 1998.
