Italy web goes to Bosnia

A private Italian network will broadcast news reports live from Bosnia-Herzegovina for at least two weeks in an attempt to spur international efforts to end the war.

“We are declaring war on silence,” said Paolo Liguori, director of Studio Aperto, who will head a news crew that left Wednesday to go to Bosnia’s battered capital, Sarajevo.

“We are not going there to prompt a military intervention, but to force the Italian and other European governments, which have showed no interest in the Bosnian war, to take some sort of action,” Liguori said Tuesday.

The daily news broadcast via satellite is expected to begin over the weekend with the support of locally hired news people and technicians.

Liguori said TV networks in Italy and elsewhere should do more to portray the drama of suffering Bosnians and the failure of international mediation efforts.
