SARAJEVO'S fuel crisis worsened Sunday, but the plight o some central and eastern communities eased with the arrival of U.N. convoys that slipped past Croat roadblocks and battle zones to deliver more than 1,000 tons of food and supplies.

The battles raging between former allies, the Bosnian Croat and Muslim-led government troops, in GORNJI VAKUF have cut off humanitarian aid convoys traveling from the Croatian port of SPLIT into Sarajevo.

"By the end of the coming week, the fuel situation in Sarajevo will be quite severe," United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees spokesman Ray Wilkinson said in Sarajevo.

Bosnian President Alija Izetbegovic headed to NEW YORK to attend a meeting of the U.N. Security Council in the wake of the failed talks. He had been in ISTANBUL, Turkey meeting with Muslim leaders.
