World IN BRIEF : YUGOSLAVIA : Army Leaves More Towns in Croatia

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The Yugoslav army announced that it was retreating from two more disputed Croatian towns after hundreds of Serbian reservists deserted and went home. Abandoned were the army barracks at the ports of Sibenik and Zadar on the Adriatic coast, which were under siege by Croatian forces. About 600 reservists sent to the volatile republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina reportedly left their units and went home to the town of Valjevo, about 50 miles from Belgrade.
