Bosnia book withdrawn

18th November 1994 at 00:00
DENMARK: The refugee aid committee, Dansk FlygtningehjAlp, has withdrawn a new textbook that calls refugees from the conflict in Bosnia "traitors and criminals of the worst possible kind".

Issued by the Bosnian educational authorities, the book was used as part of the curriculum for fourth-grade Bosnian children in Danish refugee camps.

Nobody at Dansk FlygtningehjAlp had read it until a volunteer Bosnian teacher arrived and was able to tell the aid committee about the book's content.
